Abstract

Technology has transformed each organization in today’s world, including services, manufacturing and retailing sector. Education sector has also adopted the latest technology to provide the state of art education services to students. Students are using mobile computing devices to learn the latest knowledge. Still in developing countries there is low intention to use technology among university students due to lack of readiness and difficult technology platforms to use the pressure of peer groups also influencing the usage of technology among students. Items adopted from literature .Population were students studding in public sector universities of Punjab, Pakistan. Survey was done to collect data from 400 respondents, where 230 were collected and 30 were partially filled. SEM (Structure Equation Modelling) technique was to statistically test the data by using the smart PLS 3 software. The results found significant between perceived ease to use and technology readiness optimism. However subjective norms influence on technology readiness optimism not supported. That provides depth inside of developing countries context. Moreover, mediation path between perceived ease to use , technology readiness optimize and intention to use was supported, that provide guidelines to the universities management to conduct seminars &training programs to improve technology readiness among students
