As Universities adapt to change and become leaders in the application of technologies as learning tools, they must not neglect the impact of this change on students. The purpose of this study is to identify the determinant variables that classify students as accepting or
resisting the adoption of learning resources delivered solely on CD-ROM. Based on the results of a self-administered questionnaire to undergraduate business law students, five statements representing four variables significantly discriminated between the two groups, namely perceived usefulness, study performance, compatibility and perceived ease of use. We recommend a transition program that retains some print-based learning resources and a training program to assist students to acquire electronic study skills through the period of change.
