The quantitative survey was carried out among students to explore the independent variables and dependent variables in the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). Also, this study conducted two tests to understand student learning performance between using and not using the web-based information retrieval platform. Data collected through the questionnaire and the test result was analyzed using computerized social science statistical software package (SPSS) software.
