Information and communication technologies (ICT) have the potential to improve all aspects of our social, economic and cultural life. The introduction of ICT in universities as institutions of higher education is clearly changing the way in which education is conducted. But, as much as important introduction is, the more important is acceptance of new technologies. For that purpose we’ll use a unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) which will explain the user intention to use information systems and subsequently to monitor the behavior of their use. This paper describes the UTAUT model and the factors that affect it, and its modification over time. Further are given examples for the application of UTAUT in different environments. Lastly, in the conclusion we note why the uptake of ICT is mandatory and should be undertaken in order to accept a new technology.
