Abstract

Students need to be well-equipped with the necessary information, understanding, capabilities, skills and awareness to learn a subject and simultaneously to optimize the use of technology. For that reason, this research studied the antecedents of students' technology use through Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model. Besides that, this paper sought to explore whether there is a difference between Arts and Science undergraduate students in terms of technology use. There were 38 Arts and 30 Science undergraduate students who participated in this online survey. Based on the independentsamples t-test, there was no significant difference (t (66) =.558, p =.579) found in terms of technology use among the Arts (M =5.772, SD =.653) and Science (M =5.661, SD =.980) students. The magnitude of the differences obtained was very small. Therefore, the findings of the study suggest that both the Arts and Science students make use of the technology regardless of their major.
