The paper reports a study focused on investigating factors that might influence students’ intention towards using mobile devices as learning tools in their education purposes. Using Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) as a base model, we developed a research model to better understand the usability factors in a local univeristy's e-learning platform. Survey findings revealed that the students would like to accept mobile devices as learning tool in order to achieve effective learning in their learning purposes.
