Forty-one total responses were used in the analysis after removing four cases of outliers, and the response rate of the study was 92%. The results showed that males group reported a mean of M = 124.46 with standard deviation of SD = 25.84 while females group reported a mean of M = 139.20 with standard deviation of SD = 13.25. The analysis showed four predictors, gender, perceived of computer attributes, perceived of computer competence in education, and perceived of cultural of using computer in education, significantly predicted the dependent variable (N = 41, ß = 0.047, p< 0.05).
