Amadin, F. I. & Obienu A. C
ABSTRACT:
Students’ acceptance is one of the key fundamentals for development and success of University E-mail system. This research
explores the level of acceptance and factors influencing the acceptance of the email system at University of Benin, Nigeria. This
research modified and used the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT2), as a theoretical basis to
conduct empirical research to test the factors that influence postgraduate students’ intention to use the e-mail system introduced
in their academic environment. To empirically test the model, a survey was administered three hundred and eight respondents
consisting of postgraduate students from various faculties of the University. The research found out that the level of acceptance
of the University E-mail system amongst the postgraduate students was moderate. However, the independent variables were
found to have strong support for Performance Expectancy, Social Influence, Attitude and Facilitating Condition to predict the
Behavioral Intention to use the University e-mail system. Based on the findings, Approaches on how to improve the level of
acceptance and intention to use where recommended.
