Abstract

The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) has successfully determined systems’ adoption and use and highlighted the role of perceptions. This model, however, does not specifically depict the role of perceptions in the use of support devices, namely tools, within a computer-based learning environment (CBLE). Based on the TAM and considering the cognitive mediational paradigm, the present contribution suggests a tool use model focusing on perceptions that influence tool use in a CBLE. Moreover, this paper explores the use of tools quantitatively and qualitatively within an experimental setting rather than self-reported tool use as indicated in previous TAM literature. Finally, it explores the effects of tool use on learning outcomes (performance). This study led to the design of perceptions for tool use: Perceived functionality and perceived usability. Overall, the findings suggested that perceived usability influences perceived functionality which in turn affects performance. Performance was also affected by quantity of tool use.
