The use of mobile phones in the world especially most developed countries have become part of everyday life and majority of people carry them all the time (Smura et al., 2009). Students in tertiary institutions are noted to be among the highest users of mobile devices and since m-learning enables mobility and mobile learning, allowing teaching and learning to extend to spaces beyond the traditional classroom, the researchers conducted an empirical study on the possible implementation of m-learning in Takoradi Technical University.

The researchers used the variables of Technology Acceptance Model (TAM)-perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, attitude towards use and behavioural intention to use as the bases for modelling the questionnaire and it was found out that almost all (99.3%) of the students are aware of m-learning but about only a third (28.6%) uses the mobile devices for m-learning while 37.1% of the respondents use their mobile devices for social media. The researchers therefore concluded it is highly possible to implement m-learning in Takoradi Technical University with little or no training for students if there is enough education.

Keywords: perceived ease of use, usefulness, attitude toward use, behavioural intention and m-learning.
