Abstract

Technologies advocate researchers had identified a number of factors that affect individual teachers' usage of computers. Nevertheless mix results were reported in literature. Hence, this study used personal characteristics and the technology acceptance constructs to understand the Actual Usage of Computer (AUC) among Malaysian teachers. The final model derived from this study was able to explain and predict approximately 54.5% of the variance in AUC. There were five variables significantly predicts the AUC and the strongest among them is perceived ease-of-use, followed by perceived usefulness, job relevance, computer compatibility and attitude. It is believed that the findings of this study would add new perspective on understanding the complexities associated with computer and learning among teachers.
