The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) was the basis of this study to investigate students’ acceptance of a haptic learning resource in anatomy education. Based on the two main elements, perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of TAM, this study used additional elements such as gender, prior experiences with similar resources, learning preference modes, and enrolled undergraduate courses to investigate students’ learning achievement and acceptance. No significant differences were found between genders orenrolled courses in the acceptance of the system in terms of ‘ease of use’ and ‘usefulness’ of the system. Students with previous experience with 3D were more favourable to a haptic device, this was statistically significant (p = .025) for “would use” and they also scored higher on the associated quiz (p = .050, Mann-Whitney U test).
