Abstract

The growing repository of learning resources on the internet provides a ubiquitous opportunity for learning. Worldwide, millions of learners leverage open learning resources (OLRs) to acquire knowledge and skills. Students in academic settings are ardent users of OLRs such as MOOCs and OERs. The purpose of this paper is to identify the factors influencing voluntary acceptance of OLRs by higher education students for complementing learning in the Indian context. The study also proposes a measurement scale for OLRs self‑efficacy (OSE). This study extends and validates the innovation diffusion theory (IDT). The integrated research model reflects the effects of relative advantage, compatibility, OSE, subjective norm and facilitating conditions on acceptance of OLRs. Online survey data from 457 technical students in India were used for analysis using structural equation modeling. Results suggest that while relative advantage, compatibility, OSE and the subjective norm significantly impact intention to use OLRs, effect of facilitating conditions is not significant. Compatibility and OSE also significantly impact relative advantage. The proposed measure of OSE has valid psychometric properties. This study has advanced knowledge on the phenomenon of voluntary acceptance of OLRs from the perspective of students in traditional academic settings in a developing country context by extending and validating IDT. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first empirical study to understand the acceptance of OLRs by students in India. This study also provides a measure for OSE. The relative advantage mediating the effect of OSE on intention is confirmed by the results, which is scarcely tested before empirically. The study has practical implications for policy makers and teachers in a developing country to provide a more contextual learning environment to the students.
