- This study was conducted to clarify the relationship of student attitude, subjective norm and perceived behavioral control to the intention of university student’s use of innovative information technology for learning and their thoughts about integrating innovative information technology into instruction in Germany. Research subjects were 270 students pursuing different academic degrees at Ilmenau University of Technology. The data were collected by web-based questionnaires.
Quantitative analytical methods, including descriptive statistics, reliability analysis, one-way ANOVA, regression
analysis, confirmatory factor analysis and a structural equation model were employed using SPSS and AMOS statistic
software. The results show that the perceived behavioral control variable has a relationship to students’ behavioral
intention. Attitudes toward the behavior and perceived behavioral control can predict the intention of the use of innovative IT and for learning inTUIlmenau students. In addition, most students have positive attitudes toward the use of innovative IT in their tuition, and believe that university instructors and students should be trained to use integrating innovative IT in teaching.
