Abstract: Massive progress in ICT and the emergence of mobile internet as a primary platform for information delivery has spurred the development of mobile learning. In order to utilise m-learning in Jordan, it is vital to explore the factors that impact university students' adoption. This quantitative study examines factors affecting students' intention to adopt m-learning using the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT). The results show that students in Jordanian universities believe that m-learning performance expectancy, effort expectancy and social influence will positively affect their intension to adopt m-learning, while facilitating conditions will not.

Keywords: m-learning; technology acceptance model; UTAUT model.
