Abstract:
This item is not the definitive copy. Please use the following citation when referencing this material: Dillon, A. (2001) User Acceptance of Information Technology. In: W. Karwowski (ed). Encyclopedia of Human Factors and Ergonomics. London: Taylor and Francis. Introduction: Despite significant investments in information technology in developed nations over recent decades, concern exists over the extent to which such expenditures have produced the intended benefits. At least part of this concern is based around the issue of whether any information technology is accepted by its intended users. Human factors professionals are interested in understanding the determinants of acceptance and ensuring new designs are built and implemented so as to minimize resistance. This concern has extended the traditional ergonomic concern with usability, or ability to use, to cover acceptance, or willingness to use.
