Collaborative e-learning (CE) is very prominent nowadays. CE combination can be a tough development as it requires large technological resources. CE can get reasonable advantages and growth performances, but its high disappointment degree is concerning. This study investigated the student populace’s acceptance of the CE by wiki technology through the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) model in order to examine the effects of major factors on intention to use the wiki to learn. From the review of previous papers, the study has identified the extra factors that should be added in proposed conceptual model namely performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, e-collaboration and intention to use for collaborative eLearning.
