Main Article Content

Achara Suksakorn


This research aims to study the college lifestyles such as behaviors and the factors that affect the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in the classes of undergraduates, postgraduates, doctoral students and faculties at King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi. The data were taken from 1023 research participants. A conceptual framework used in this research is Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). The instruments are questionnaires, and a 5 rating scale check-list survey. The statistical analyses were Percentage, Mean, Standard Deviation and Correlation coefficient of Person (r). The results suggest that Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of Use, Attitude toward the Use of ICT, Behavior Intention to Use, and Actual System Use have an effect on the ICT behaviors of undergraduates, postgraduates, doctoral students and faculties. The results can be useful for those involved with the use of ICT in classrooms, and the development of ICT for learning which can be beneficial to both the students and the professors.
