Wikipedia, biggest multilingual free-content encyclopedia on the Internet, is popular with students. Is Wikipedia a bane or wane for our students? This paper describes an empirical study to investigate determinant factors of information use or misuse in Wikipedia. We developed a research model based on the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UATAUT). Seventy-three students of a local university took part in the survey. Findings indicate that respondents’ performance expectancy, effort expectancy, and social influence were significant in encouraging information use. The paper concludes with implications for educators.
