This study analyzed the relationships among factors predicting online university students’ actual usage of a mobile learning management system (m-LMS) through a structural model. Data from 222 students in a Korean online university were collected to investigate integrated relationships among their perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, expectation-confirmation, satisfaction, continuance intention and actual usage of m-LMS. Results showed that perceived ease of use predicted perceived usefulness, but expectation-confirmation was not related to perceived usefulness. Perceived usefulness and expectation-confirmation predicted satisfaction. Perceived usefulness and satisfaction predicted continuance intention, but perceived ease of use was not related to continuance intention. Continuance intention predicted actual usage of m-LMS.
