Abstract: Ubiquitous technologies have a great potential to enrich students' academic experience. Students are more interested in using interactive learning techniques apart from the traditional learning techniques. Several research studies for m-learning has been done in the USA, UK concentrating on students undergoing a graduation degree, especially subjects like engineering, arts, maths, science, etc. Hence the need has arisen to conduct a separate research on m-learning in the Indian context. This study proposes a modified UTAUT2 (unified theory of acceptance and use of technology) model with nine core independent determinants predicting the tenth dependent variables construct. Data analysis has been done using both the descriptive (frequency counts, percentages, and means) and inferential statistics (correlation analysis, multiple linear regression analysis and principal component analysis). This study aims to develop a new model that encompasses the factors affecting the utilisation of ubiquitous technology among students in institutes of higher education, particularly in India.

Keywords: UTAUT2; mobile learning; ubiquitous technology.
