    The differences of students traits in computer science program with the perception of using laptops for studying in Chengdu, Sichuan, China
    (Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2022) Lei, Wang ; Hossain, Mohammad Shazzad ; Chompu Nuangjamnong
    With a sample size of 475 respondents, this study examined how students' disparities in computer science qualities affect their perceptions of using laptops for learning in a computer science program in Chengdu, Sichuan, China. A questionnaire was used as the research instrument. Conduct statistical analysis of variance on the data (Multivariate Analysis of Variance: MANOVA). Perceived ease of use (X̅) = 4.141, perceived usefulness (X̅) = 4.181, trust (X̅) = 4.147, and behavioral intention (X̅) = 4.166 were all high average scores. Meanwhile, at the 0.05 level of significance, gender, age, subjects in computer science courses, and types of laptop manufacturers have no statistically significant difference on perceived ease of use, perceived utility, trust, or behavioral intention. Thus, students use laptops in their study environments, and it was discovered that students' perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, trust, and behavioral intention to use laptops for studying in computer science courses are generally positive, as the average score is higher, with no significant difference between student characteristics in gender, age, subjects in computer science courses, and types of laptop manufacturers.

    (Bangkok : Assumption University Press, 2022) Cao, Yingqu ; Chanintorn Jittawiriyanukoon
    This study aims to examine factors impacting online learning usage among students in Sichuan private universities, China. The variables used to construct the conceptual framework are perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, information quality, system quality, service quality, attitude towards using, satisfaction, behavioral intention and actual use. Research design, data and methodology: The quantitative approach (n=500) was conducted via online questionnaire, using judgmental sampling, quota sampling and convenience sampling. Before processing the data collection, content validity was reserved by index of item objective congruence (IOC). Pilot study of 40 samples was approved by Cronbach’s Alpha reliability test. Afterwards, the data was analyzed in SPSS using descriptive statistics, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and structural equation modeling (SEM). Results: The results revealed that satisfaction had the strongest significant impact on behavioral intention, followed by perceived usefulness on attitude toward using, service quality on behavioral intention, behavioral intention on actual use, information quality on behavioral intention, perceived ease of use on attitude toward using and attitude toward using on behavioral intention. On the other hand, the relationship between system quality and behavioral intention was not significant. Conclusions: Academic practitioners were recommended to encourage online learning usage among students by developing better online learning system, technical support service and learning experience which led to successful adoption and learning effectiveness of students in higher education.
