Student users' acceptance is crucial to the success of open resources for university education. Drawing on the theory of reasoned behavior, technology acceptance model and flow theory, this research examines the factors affecting university students' acceptance of open resources for university education. We have collected 200 valid questionnaires and conducted data analysis with structural equation modeling. The results show that information quality and perceived usefulness are the two main factors affecting users' acceptance. Perceived ease of use significantly affects perceived usefulness and the perceived enjoyment. We have not found the obvious effect of the perceived enjoyment on user acceptance. Thus, open resource providers need to provide quality and useful information in order to improve students' learning efficiency and learning effects.
