Information and communication technologies (ICT) have the potential to improve all aspects of our social, economic and cultural life. The ICT imposes inevitable positive changes upon the modern world. These changes are largely related to education as well. The introduction of ICT in 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 shall use a unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT) created by Venkatesh, 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. Further, examples are given for the application of UTAUT in different educational environments. Then are given initial research for the application of UTAUT in our university "Goce Delcev"-Stip, Macedonia about acceptance and use of e-learning information system and ugd repository. Lastly, in the conclusion we note why the uptake of ICT is mandatory and should be undertaken in order to accept a new technology
