ItemDeterminants of undergraduates' continuance intention and actual behavior to play mobile games in Chongqing, China(Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2022)Purpose: The widespread use of the Internet and the increasing of sophisticated production of online games have brought great changes to the life of college students. Consequently, this paper examines the determinants of undergraduate student’s continuance intention and actual behavior to play online mobile games in Chongqing, China. The conceptual framework proposes causal relationships between attitudes, utilitarian outcome expectations, hedonic outcome expectations, subjective norms, time constraint, continuance intentions and actual behavior. Research design, data and methods: Data were collected from 500 undergraduate students in Chongqing. Nonprobability sampling were employed, including judgmental sampling, quota sampling and convenience sampling. Before the data collection, the index of item-objective congruence (IOC) and Cronbach's Alpha were applied to approve validity and reliability. Structural equation model (SEM) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) were used for data analysis, including model fit, reliability and validity. Results: Attitude, utilitarian outcome expectation, hedonic outcome expectation, subjective norms, time constraints significantly influence continuance intention. Furthermore, the continuance intention has the strongest influence on the actual behavior of mobile games among students. Conclusions: All hypotheses were proved to be consistent with the research objectives. The results from this study will be useful for mobile game developers and marketers in formulating appropriate applications that will attract more consumers.
ItemExamining factors impacting purchase intention of 3D cameras of Gen Y customers in Chengdu, China(Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2022)Purpose: In marketing studies, purchase intention is a key indicator for the product development, marketization and sales strategy. Therefore, this study aims to examining factors impacting purchase intention of 3D cameras of Generation Y customers in Chengdu, China. Research design, data and methodology: This quantitative research selects 500 consumers between the age of 25 and 40 years old who are living in Chengdu, China and have at least one year of experience with top three 3D camera brands. Sampling techniques are judgmental, quota and convenience samplings. Item Objective Congruence (IOC) Index validity test and Cronbach’s Alpha reliability test were approved before the data collection. SPSS and SPSS Amos statistical software were implemented for Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), including factor loadings, convergent validity, discriminant validity, composite reliability, AVE and goodness of fit. Structural Equation Model (SEM) was applied to test hypotheses. Results: Gen Y customers' purchase intention is significantly impacted by social influence, perceived quality, attitude, satisfaction, and trust. In addition, trust has the strongest significant influence on customer’s purchase intention of 3D Cameras. Conclusions: The findings contribute to marketers and salespersons to understand motivational factors of 3D cameras’ purchase decision of Generation Y customers, leading to the development of marketing and sales strategy for such products and other substitute gadgets.
ItemExploring behavioral intention towards hybrid education of undergraduate students in public University in Chongqing, China(Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2022)Purpose: This study investigates key factors influencing behavioral intention to use hybrid education of undergraduate students in Arts and Design of three universities in Chongqing, China. Perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, performance expectancy, self-efficacy, effort expectancy, social influence, and behavioral intention were associated in a conceptual framework. Research design, data, and methods: The researchers used a quantitative approach for survey distribution to 500 participants. The sampling techniques involve judgmental, quota and convenience sampling. Item Objective Congruence (IOC) Index and Cronbach’s Alpha reliability test were approved prior to the data collection. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) and Structural Equation Model (SEM) were used to test models’ goodness of fit, validity, and reliability. Results: Perceived usefulness has the strongest significant impact on behavioral intention, followed by perceived ease of use, self-efficacy, effort expectancy, and social influence. Furthermore, perceived ease of use strongly and significantly impacts perceived usefulness. In contrary, the relationship between performance expectancy and behavioral intention was not supported. Conclusion: Hybrid education has gained the most concern in the system adoption for teaching and learning effectiveness. Therefore, educational stakeholders should identify the main contributors to achieve the hybrid learning implementation and increase student engagement and learning performance.
ItemInvestigation on satisfaction and performance of online education among fine arts major undergraduates in Chengdu Public University(Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2022)Purpose: This research investigates factors affecting satisfaction and performance of online education among undergraduate fine art students in three public universities in Chengdu, China. The variables include perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use, self-efficacy, task-technology fit, compatibility, satisfaction and performance. Research design, data, and methods: Through a quantitative research approach, questionnaires were distributed via online and offline channels to 500 target respondents. Judgmental, quota and convenience samplings were used to collect the data. The data previously examined by Item Objective Congruence (IOC) Index to confirm content validity, and by Cronbach’s Alpha coefficient value to approve constructs’ reliability in a pilot test of 30 participants. Statistical analysis involves confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and structural equation model (SEM), including the test of factor loadings, validity, reliability and goodness of fit model. Results: The results showed that perceived ease of use significant affected satisfaction and perceived usefulness. The relationship between self-efficacy, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness was supported. Compatibility and task-technology fit significantly affected student satisfaction. Furthermore, satisfaction is a predictor of performance. Conclusion: For online education providers, the system should be designed to be easy, useful, self-control, compatibility and task-fit to gain higher student satisfaction and performance.
ItemThe effect of behavioral intention to use hybrid education: a case of Chinese undergraduate students(Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2022)Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examining factors affecting undergraduate painting students' behavioral intention toward hybrid education in three public universities in Chongqing, China. Perceived ease of use (PEOU), perceived usefulness (PU), perceived satisfaction (PS), social influence (SI), performance expectancy (PE), Facilitating conditions (FC), and behavioral intention (BI) were used to develop the conceptual framework of this study. Research design, data, and methods: The researchers used quantitative study to distributing questionnaire to 500 participants, who are undergraduate students in the major of painting. The survey was conducted in three sample techniques which are judgmental sampling, quota sampling and convenience sampling methods. An item-objective congruence (IOC) of content validity and Cronbach's Alpha reliability test with 30 pilot samples were earlier assessed. Statistical analyses involve Confirmatory Factor analysis (CFA) and Structural Equation Model (SEM), including model goodness of fit, validity, and reliability. Results: Most hypotheses were supported with the strongest influence between perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness, except facilitation conditions which had no significant influence on behavioral intention. Conclusion: The recommends are that administrators in the educational sector of public institutions should emphasize the main contributors to hybrid learning implementation to increase student engagement and learning efficiency.
