Technology Acceptance Model, Student Information System, Trust, Student, Satisfaction


In this study, the factors affecting student satisfaction with student information systems have been investigated by applied Technology Acceptance Model and rust. Partial least squares structural equation modelling implemented to study these factors. 400 authentic responses from overseas students in a large number of universities located in Jiangsu province China have been evaluated. The statistical investigation findings demonstrate that student trust has a considerable effect on student satisfaction; meanwhile, the behavioural intention of use has no significant impact on student satisfaction.
