Abstract

This paper investigates the use of webinars among students at a university in Abu Dhabi using UTAUT model. Cross-sectional research design was used, and 134 participants were involved through a purposive criterion sampling technique. Data were collected through a survey based on a questionnaire. Findings revealed a significant relationship among performance expectancy (p-value 0.000), effort expectancy (p-value 0.000), and social influence (p-value 0.000), and an insignificant relationship with facilitating conditions (p-value 0.10) and voluntariness of use (p-value 0.61). The results would facilitate educational institutions in implementing the advanced system of education incorporating the use of webinars as a contemporary technological tool. The study is significant in determining the need for the use of webinars in class, illustrating both students’ and teachers’ perspectives. The implementation of the proposed results is not only limited to the case of Abu Dhabi but can be generalized to other educational institutions as well.
