Abstract

The purpose of this study is to provide the innovative spatial visualization training using 3D apparel design and to examine how older adults of four different ethnic groups evaluate it by applying the Technology Acceptance Model and the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology. A quantitative research design was utilized using the online survey. A total of600 usable data were collected employing a quota sampling method. The SEM result shows the good model-data fit with the significant relationships among most of the latent variables. The ANOVA result show the significant mean differences of all latent variables among four ethnic groups, except the self-efficacy. The findings of this study revealed the importance of perceived ease of use and the performance expectancy to increase the positive attitude toward the training for older adults. The practical application to design the training based on different ethnic groups is needed.
