Integrating perceived playfulness into expectation-confirmation model for web portal context

Integrating perceived playfulness into expectation-confirmation model for web portal context This paper investigated the value of including “playfulness” in expectation-confirmation theory (ECT) when studying continued use of a web site. Original models examined cognitive beliefs and effects that influence a person’s intention to continue to use an information system. Here, an extended ECT model (with an additional relationship between perceived playfulness and satisfaction ) was shown to provide a better fit than a simple path from perceived usefulness to satisfaction. The results indicated that perceived playfulness, confirmation to satisfaction, and perceived usefulness all contributed significantly to the users’ intent to reuse a web site. Thus, we believe that the extended ECT model is an appropriate tool for the study of web site effects. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Information & Management Elsevier

Abstract

This paper investigated the value of including “playfulness” in expectation-confirmation theory (ECT) when studying continued use of a web site. Original models examined cognitive beliefs and effects that influence a person’s intention to continue to use an information system. Here, an extended ECT model (with an additional relationship between perceived playfulness and satisfaction ) was shown to provide a better fit than a simple path from perceived usefulness to satisfaction. The results indicated that perceived playfulness, confirmation to satisfaction, and perceived usefulness all contributed significantly to the users’ intent to reuse a web site. Thus, we believe that the extended ECT model is an appropriate tool for the study of web site effects.
