Abstract: This study proposes a museum-based context-aware ubiquitous language learning (ULL) system for engaging students which integrates socio-cultural contexts while learning English. The factors affecting the students' behavioural intention were investigated. The results demonstrate that the university students' complex problem-solving tendency had a significant positive influence on their effort expectancy and hedonic motivation. When the learners' awareness of the complex problem-solving tendency increased, their preference for learning with the system increased as well; when the students' autonomy and self-learning in relation to accomplishing the learning tasks rose, their usage intention also increased. In addition, performance expectancy, social influence, hedonic motivation, and self-management of learning had positive effects on the students' behavioural intention to use the museum-based context-aware language learning system. It was also found that the high-performance students spent more time working on the tasks, while the low-performance students spent more time reading the learning materials.
