  • u-Park means national parks with environmentally sound information networks and integrated ubiquitous services are available. u-Park is totally managed based on u-IT (Ubiquitous IT Technologies) which provides ubiquitous service through sophisticated resources of national park and establishments. It is necessary in changing the existing park management system into u-IT based u-Park management system that park managers should accept new technology, u-Park management system, and be able to utilize it. The purposes of this research is to analyze managers' acceptance behavior on ubiquitous computing technology. Technology acceptance model (TAM) was introduced to specifies the causal relationships among variables related to managers' technology acceptance behavior. The hypothesized model was tested by surveying 157 managers at 5 national parks in Korea. TAM accounted for 55.2% of the variance in intention to use. The most important finding is that perceived compatibleness was the most influential variable in determining intention to use. This means that u-Park management system should be compatible with manager's task and business style.

  • This research verified that how Health-Consciousness and Enjoyment can have influence on the Technology Acceptance Model(TAM) using Structural Equation Model(SEM) to suggest a Tangible Fitness Game(TFG) acceptance model. First of all, perceived usefulness and ease of use, the core factors of TAM could influence on the intention to use TFG, so the applicability of TAM was confirmed in the context of using TFG. Health-consciousness, defined as some beliefs and interests on the importance of health, was found to have an positive effect on perceived usefulness and have an influence on the intention to use TFG. Enjoyment also influenced on the intention to use through usefulness and ease of use. This research contributes to make elaborate theoretical accounts by verifying some factors influencing on the intention to use TFG using Extended Technology Acceptance Model.

  • In this study, the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) was applied to explore the process of using card news. Card news users are found to be active in searching and selecting appropriate news for themselves, information seeking style and news literacy were established as antecedent variables that can influence card news usage. A survey of 400 university students with experience of using card news was conducted. For statistical analysis, SEM was conducted. The analysis showed that information seeking style significantly affects perceived ease of use (PEU) and that news literacy influences neither PEU nor PU. PEU was found to have a significant effect on PU, and both PEU and PU had a significant effect on recommendation intention.

  • As the smart phone devices gain popularity, companies no longer consider mobile application marketing as an auxiliary marketing tactic. The branded mobile application (branded app) becomes an important part of marketing strategies. This study is an attempt to investigate antecedents of the use intention of the branded app from the perspective of TAM (Technology Acceptance Model). This study takes a macro perspective in explaining the adoption process by incorporating a set of new, yet promising additional variables into the TAM model such as flow experience, benefits, innovation inclination, and customization features. Data were collected by using a survey research. A total of 270 responses were collected. Questionnaires from 25 individuals were removed from the data set due to the insincere responses, leaving the final sample size of 245. Findings support all but one hypotheses of the study. Both perceived utilitarian benefits and customization features of the branded app were found to have positive influences on the perceived usefulness of the branded app. Also, the innovation inclination and perceived entertainment of branded app users showed positive influences on the perceived ease of use of branded app. In addition, it was shown that the perceived usefulness about the use of the branded app influenced positively the flow experience and the users' attitudes toward branded app. Also, the ease of use perceived by branded app users had positive influences on the perceived usefulness and the user's attitude toward branded app. However, the ease of use of branded app did not have a significant influence on the flow experience among users. Moreover, the flow experience from the use of branded app users influenced positively the user's attitude toward branded app. Finally, the users' attitudes toward branded app had positive influences on their intention to use the branded app. Implications for practitioners and academicians are provided.

  • Common Method Bias(CMB) may cause the potential inflation of correlations between measures assessed via the same method. The problem of CMB has been well known in behavioral sciences because the survey method with self-reporting is vulnerable to CMB. Thus, the discussion on CMB is still ongoing in the MIS research in US. However, in Korea, the MIS research has never paid attention on the CMB problem. The purpose of this study is to examine the CMB problem in the Korean MIS research. To evaluate the effect of CMB, empirical studies on Technology Acceptance Model(TAM) are selected because (1) TAM is one of the MIS research areas studied intensively, (2) TAM is a theoretical model well supported by the existing empirical studies so that the result of this study would have a great ripple effect when the CMB problem turned out to be serious, (3) CMB is domain-specific. 47 TAM samples (out of 45 studies) from three Korean Journals were selected and the relevant data were collected such as correlation matrixes and the measures of the dependent variable. To find and evaluate the size of CMB, two analytic methods (Marker-Variable Technique and Method-Method Pair Technique) are employed. The result showed that there exists CMB in the Korean studies but the problem is not so serious to distort the empirical testing, compared with that of US studies. However, considering that CMB can contaminate the testing results, Korean MIS researchers should explicitly deal with the problem in designing empirical studies and collecting data.

  • The purpose of this study is to develop a new equipment acceptance model in the industrial market and test it empirically using a field survey. To define new equipment acceptance factors of employees in the organization, we used the TAM as a useful model to analyze the acceptance process of new equipment. All of the data for the TAM were collected from the employees. Prior research studied the usage of general information technology using a computer and particular software, while we apply the TAM to the new equipment adoption. In this study, both theoretical review and empirical study were conducted and the model was set through the theoretical study which was tested through the empirical analysis. Management support and training/education were shown to have a positive effect on PU and PEOU. Personal innovativeness, management support, perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use were shown to have a positive effect on behavioral intention.

  • Growth in the use of mobile commerce services (MCS) as an enabler to conduct business more effectively has been phenomenal. Technology acceptance model (TAM) has been applied in different contexts to examine a wide range of information technology. As more and more companies are finding ways to utilize MCS, an important issue is to understand what factors will affect the decisions of consumers in adopting the services. Based on TAM with two additional groups of external factors (i.e., service-related factors [ubiquitous access and contextual service] and technology-related factors [perceived security risk and network connectivity]) that are theoretically justified to affect both perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, which are also considered, a research model for the investigated technology acceptance was developed and empirically examined. The major results of this study are as follows. First, ubiquitous access affects perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use. Contextual service affects perceived usefulness. Second, perceived security risk affects perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use. Finally, network connectivity affects perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use.

  • With the increased importance of groupware in organizations, groupware acceptance is regarded as an important outcome in the efforts of firms to leverage the potential of this information technology in their business activities and strategies. Despite significant investments in groupware, considerable diversity exists in how well firms have been able to implement groupware and leverage the business value of groupware. This study identifies important factors influencing user acceptance of groupware by extending TAM(Technology Acceptance Model) which includes perceived control, intrinsic motivation, and concentration as well as perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness from original TAM. The proposed model is tested in an organization among 104 employees using previous research measurements. According to the findings from the study, the usage intention of groupware can be explained by intrinsic motivation, perceived control, perceived ease of use, and Perceived usefulness. However, it fails to explain the effect of concentration on the intention.

  • 지금까지의 국내외 연구들에서 다루어 왔던 TAM 연구들의 대부분은 사용 용이성과 유용성이 정보기술의 사용에 어떤 관련성이 있는가에 연구의 초점을 맞추어 왔다. 하지만, TAM의 구성요소중 하나인 외부변수에 대한 구체적인 정의가 동반되지 못했다 이에 본 논문에서는 TAM의 외부변수들을 선행된 연구들에서 찾아 정리하고, 개인적 변수와 조직적 변수로 크게 분류하여 이들 변수들이 사용 용이성과 유용성에 어떠한 영향을 주는 지를 연구함으로써, 사회나 조직 구성원들이 정보기술을 습득하고 수용하는 일련의 과정을 연구하는 것을 그 목적으로 하고 있다.
