Chinese Abstract

隨著資訊科技的快速發展,平板電腦結合了行動裝置和筆記型電腦的特徵並開創出創新的學習模式,現今許多校園已採用平板電腦作為教學應用。平板電腦的尺寸、直覺化的設計、流暢的操作方式加上整合各式各樣的教學應用,使其具備一定的潛力超越,甚至取代以往的學習工具。隨著這股趨勢,越來越多的校園開始注意到了透過平板電腦來進行學習,並且開始採用平板電腦做為新一代的教學工具,但現今只有少數的研究探討影響學生轉換到平板電腦學習的因素。因此,此研究試圖分析何種因素會影響學生對於使用平板電腦電子教科書的轉換意圖,並透過推拉模型The Push-Pull-Mooring (PPM) 與結構化方程式來描繪及解釋推力、拉力與躊躇力三者之結構化的關係。並藉由分析躊躇變數與性別來分析此兩種調節變數是否對於推力/拉力與轉換意圖之間有調節效果。此研究結果顯示,推力、拉力、與躊躇力對於學生的轉換意圖皆有顯著的影響,學生對於平板電腦所帶來優勢,包括媒體豐富性、同儕之間的影響及學習上的輔助皆有助於提升學生之轉換意圖,推力與躊躇力相對於拉力來說影響較小;習慣性、轉換成本對於轉換意圖有負面的影響,將導致學在轉換的過程中猶豫不決;躊躇變數與性別則無顯著的調節效果。

English Abstract

Due to the rapid pace of development and innovation in information technology, a new learning tool, tablet-based PC, appears as a blend of mobile devices and laptops which combine both advantages and become a new learning pattern in campus. With the fit size, intuitive, and streamlined design, tablet-based PCs integrate various learning applications and have potential to surpass tradition learning tools by creating a better way for learning. With this trend, more and more schools have realized the value of tablet learning and began to use tablet device as an educational tool, but there is only a limited understanding about what factors drive students’ switching intentions to tablet learning. Thus, this research attempts to explore factors influencing students switching intentions toward tablet e-textbook applications. The Push-Pull-Mooring (PPM) model had been adopted to delineate students’ switching intentions towards tablet e-textbook applications by examining structural relationships among push, pull, and mooring factors on switching intentions. Furthermore, mooring factors and gender had applied into our research model to analysis whether these two variables moderate the relationship of push/pull factors on switching intentions. Our results revealed that push, pull and mooring effects all significant influence students’ switching intentions toward tablet e-textbook applications. Pull effects have the strongest power affecting student’s switching intentions while push and mooring effects relatively weaker than pull effects. Mooring effects include habit and switching cost negatively influenced switching intentions. Furthermore, moderating effects of mooring factors and gender are found to be insignificant in this study.
