The Motivation Orientation Scale – Student Version (MO-SV) and Unified Theory of User Acceptance of Technology (UTAUT) were used to predict to what extent motivation orientation impacts student intent to take online courses, to examine the intrinsic and extrinsic motivators of students that drive them to take online courses, to examine the relationship between motivation to take online courses and motivation to take face-to-face courses, and to determine if demographic variables influence behavioral intent to take online courses. A sample of 394 full-time and part-time students at a large, public, research university with an integrated health center in the Southeast United States responded to the online survey. Results demonstrated that more students than not reported behavioral intent to take online courses. Multiple regression analysis indicated that performance expectancy, social influence, facilitating conditions, total motivation orientation to take online courses, total motivation orientation to take face-to-face courses, and current number of online courses taken statistically and significantly predicted behavioral intent to take online courses.
