This contribution presents results from two exploratory studies on technology acceptance and use of widget-based personal learning environments. Methodologically, the investigation carried out applies the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT). With the help of this instrument, the study assesses expert judgments about intentions to use and actual use of the emerging technology of flexibly arranged combinations of use-case-sized mini learning tools. This study aims to explore the applicability of the UTAUT model and questionnaire for widget-based personal learning environments and reports back on the experiences gained with the two studies.
