ABSTRACT:
One of the aims of Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya National Mission on Teachers and Training (PMMMNMTT) Scheme is to impart knowledge about pedagogical skills and ICT tools among higher education teachers. Therefore, the present study is focused to identify the motivational factors behind intention to use ICT among Degree College Teachers for performing their jobs. Our study extends Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) by adding two additional variables namely facilitating conditions and social influence with the expectation that they influence intention to use ICT. A sample of 145 college teachers was collected to across different universities from Delhi -NCR region, who have participated atleast one training programme (minimum of 10 days) from any of the Teaching Learning Centre set up under PMMMNMTT scheme. Structural Equational modelling has been used to establish the relationship between the construct and the results demonstrated that all the four factors that is perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, facilitating conditions, and social influence attitude to use ICT which further leads to intention to use ICT. However, perceived ease of use showed low but positive and significant relationship with attitude to use ICT. The study also provided inputs for policy measures and also stated suggestions to improve intention to use ICT tools.
