With the fast and growing trend of mobile learning in higher education, Blackboard LearnTM , one of the leading learning management systems, has launched its newest feature in the Philippines, the Blackboard Mobile Learn. It takes the interactive teaching and learning process to mobile devices giving teachers and students instant access to their courses, content and organizations anywhere (Blackboard, 2010). Understanding the acceptance and use of this new technology is important for all its users. Hence, this paper aimed to use an adapted version of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) to examine the constructs that affect the acceptance and use of Bb Mobile Learn among university students and determine how these constructs affect each other. Using Structural Equation Modelling (SEM), results of this study revealed that performance expectancy, effort expectancy and facilitating conditions have direct positive effect on students behavioral intention to use Bb Mobile Learn and students behavioral intention and facilitating conditions have direct positive effect on their actual use of Bb Mobile Learn. In addition, using descriptive phenomenology, students lived experiences revealed that merits and challenges of the Bb Mobile Learn lie on its automated assessment, support, interest and accessibility (ASIA). This paper contributes to the administrators and classroom teachers in the university by providing basis for further improvement on their design and implementation of learning management system using mobile devices.
