Computers and communications technologies have an increasingly significant impact upon the ways we learn and teach. With current technology, it is possible to have reasonably good videoconferencing using standard PCs and off-the-shelves softwares. A possible use of videoconferencing for education is for remote tutoring. This research seeks to assess the response of potential users to such a remote tutoring system. Will they perceive the system to be useful? Will they use the system? Using the technology acceptance model, a survey of the potential users was made. Results of the survey show that perceived usefulness of remote tutoring systems and attitudes towards use are determinants of individuals’ usage intentions.
