The purpose of this paper is to examine an integrated model of TAM and D&M to explore the effects of quality features, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness on users' intentions and satisfaction, alongside the mediating effect of usability towards use of e-learning in Iran. Based on the e-learning user data collected through a survey, structural equations modeling (SEM) and path analysis were employed to test the research model. The results revealed that "intention" and "user satisfaction" both had positive effects on actual use of e-learning. "System quality" and "information quality" were found to be the primary factors driving users' intentions and satisfaction towards use of e-learning. At last, "perceived usefulness" mediated the relationship between ease of use and users' intentions. The sample consisted of e-learning users of four public universities in Iran. Past studies have seldom examined an integrated model in the context of e-learning in developing countries. Moreover, this paper tries to provide a literature review of recent published studies in the field of e-learning. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

The relations among religiousness, subjective well-being (SWB) and the HEXACO (Honesty-Humility, Emotionality, eXtraversion, Agreeableness, Conscientiousness, Openness) model of personality were studied in a Muslim population. As expected, Extraversion and Honesty-Humility factors were the strongest correlates of SWB and religiosity, respectively. Religiosity also correlated with higher levels of SWB, and explained variance in SWB beyond personality factors, showing that religion is a unique predictor of well-being. Results have been discussed within the religious orientation paradigm, and the HEXACO model of personality structure. © 2014 © 2014 Taylor & Francis. Source

Implementing an enterprise resource planning system is a sophisticated, lengthy, and costly process which tends to face serious failure. Thus, it is essential to perform a success assessment at the post-implementation stage of an ERP project to evaluate how much the system has succeeded in achieving its predetermined objectives. This paper proposes a practical framework for assessing a firm's ERP post-implementation success utilising current models through a fuzzy analytic network process. The construct of ERP success is broken down into three main parts, including managerial success, organisational success, and individual success. Using this framework, the firm's ERP system success can be determined and the required improvement projects can be proposed to promote the success level. The proposed framework has been applied to a real international company, in the field of manufacturing and supplying turbines, to measure the firm's ERP postimplementation success. Finally, the advantages of the model are illustrated. © 2013 Taylor & Francis. Source

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to explore barriers; the mediating role of usability; and the moderating effects of subjective norms, personal innovativeness, self-efficacy and perceived image on users’ attitudes toward loyalty to Internet banking (IB) in Iran. Design/methodology/approach – Based on the consumer data collected from a survey, structural equations modeling and path analysis were used to test the research model. Findings – The results revealed that “low perceived usefulness” and “low perceived ease of use” both had negative effects on users’ attitudes. “Low awareness” and “low system compatibility” were found to be the main factors impeding users’ attitudes toward loyalty to IB. “Perceived usefulness” showed no mediating role in the relationship between ease of use and users’ attitudes. At last, all concerned moderators moderated the relationships between ease of use/usefulness and users’ attitudes. Research limitation/implication – The sample was only composed of IB users of one Iranian bank, and non-users were not studied. Originality/value – Past studies have seldom examined the role of individual drivers such as personal innovativeness and self-efficacy and social drivers such as subjective norms and perceived image as moderating variables in the context of developing countries. © Emerald Group Publishing Limited.

The purpose of this paper is to examine an integrated model of TAM and IS success model to explore the effects of quality features, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness on users' intentions and satisfaction and their effects on e-learning outcomes such as actual use and perceived learning assistance, alongside the mediating effect of usability towards use of e-learning in Iran. Based on the e-learning user data collected through a survey, structural equations modeling (SEM) and path analysis were employed to test the research model. The results revealed that "intention" and "user satisfaction" both had positive effects on actual use of e-learning. "System quality" and "information quality" were found to be the primary factors driving users' intentions and satisfaction towards use of e-learning. E-learning outcomes such as actual use and perceived learning assistance were positively predicted by satisfaction and intention. At last, "perceived usefulness" mediated the relationship between ease of use and users' intentions. The sample consisted of e-learning users of four public universities in Iran. Past studies have seldom examined an integrated model in the context of e-learning in developing countries. Moreover, this paper tries to provide a literature review of recent published studies in the field of e-learning. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source
