The data for this study was elicited through questionnaires adapted from Venkatesh et al. (2003). The findings showed that performance expectations and effort expectations do not have a significant positive impact on behavioral intentions.On the other hand, the coefficients for social influence and facilitating conditions had a significant positive effect on behavioral intentions.
