Description

The measures to counter the COVID-19 pandemic add pressure on students to meet the challenges of digitized courses in higher education. Many suffer from these demands and fail to regulate their learning effectively. Behavior Change Support Systems (BCSSs) are a promising approach to guide students towards a successful learning behavior. Nevertheless, successful integration of the systems requires users’ acceptance and intention to use. While BCSSs have been well studied in several research areas, there is insufficient evidence on the design features that promote the acceptance of BCSSs in educational contexts. This study presents LANA, a BCSS towards self-regulated learning that is designed following the Persuasive System Design Model by Oinas-Kukkonen and Harjumaa (2009). The evaluation using the Technology Acceptance Model by Davis (1986) shows that perceived usefulness has a significant impact on students' intention to use LANA and highlights the importance of considering the design of the user interface.
