Data were collected from 181 participants with experience in using online distance learning (ODL). The results shown a high consistency and reliability, thereby demonstrating that the proposed model holds substantial a new explanatory in online distance learning mechanism. This study revealed that technology readiness is a key factor that signiﬁcantly inﬂuences Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) student’s BIs toward using online distance learning (ODL).).
