  • 1. ROR icon University of Technology, Mauritius


The Internet of Things (IoT) connects multiple devices that collect and transmit data without human intervention into one and provides a digital network connection that can change everything, anytime, from any tool. Hence, IoT continues to strengthen its imperative place in the progress and growth of society. The use of IoT in the higher education in Mauritius will bring new opportunities and possibilities for the improvement of both teaching and learning process and HEIs’ infrastructure. This research, therefore, evaluates the learner's perceptions on the adoption of IoT in the field of higher education in Mauritius which will bring new opportunities and possibilities for the improvement of both teaching and learning process and HEIs’ infrastructure. The sample selection in this study used a convenience random sampling technique and the target population was reduced to public HEIs’ in Mauritius. The research yielded 280 usable responses and analysis of descriptive statistics, frequencies, and chi-square test were conducted to address the research objective. The findings showed how the adoption of IoT can help academics and learners influence technologies' benefits to improve learning and academic performance. The results revealed that the learners have a positive attitude towards IoT. Learners have a digital mindset and hence the adoption intention behavior on IoT was positively accepted. The study contributes to the future adoption of IoT by universities from both a theoretical and practical standpoint.
