Assessing the influence of e-commerce item recommender systems on user continuance intention for future use of recommender system

Shahmanzari, Masoud
In recent years, there are several research studies on initial adaptation of information systems using recommender agents. This study, however, investigates the post-adaption behavior of users of such systems. As online e-commerce service websites are attracting users, existence of a recommender technology plays a substantial role in encouraging users to continue using system by helping them to discover and find items which they may interested and subsequently prefer to purchase. Researchers found that acquiring a new customer for a specific service or product costs five times more than retaining existing customer. Recommender systems are sophisticated, intelligent and automated software which help customers to make an ideal decision by providing high quality recommendations for them. Using online costumer behavior tracking or gain information from them, recommender v systems provide the most interesting service or products to customers. Implementing recommender systems increases online retailer‟s sales as well as their customer‟s loyalty. The main objective of this study is to assess the influence of e-commerce product recommender systems on consumer‟s continuance intention to use of information system in future. The proposed model in this study consists of four constructs including quality of decision, decision effort, overall satisfaction and continuance intention to use information system.


Evaluating learning management systems: Hexagonal e-learning assessment model (HELAM)
Ozkan, Sevgi; Koseler, Refika; Baykal, Nazife (null; 2008-12-01)
A considerable amount of research has been conducted on evaluating success of information systems. However, there has been little research addressing the conceptualization and measurement of elearning systems success within educational organizations. Evaluation of information systems within the growing e-learning sector is currently receiving attention, and this research study proposes a conceptual e-learning assessment model, HELAM (Hexagonal e-Learning Assessment Model). HELAM has been applied to 23 e-lea...
Using learning to rank for a top-n recommendation system in TV domain
Acar, Bedia; Çiçekli, Fehime Nihan; Department of Computer Engineering (2016)
In this thesis, a top-N recommendation system in TV domain is proposed using learning to rank. The design, development and evaluation of the proposed recommender system are described in detail. Instead of calculating rating score of items like in conventional recommender systems, the ranked recommendation item list is presented to TV users. Moreover, path-based features which are used to build ranking model is explained in detail. These features provide collaborative filtering, content-based filtering and c...
An implementation on use of handheld technologies in medical research areas : healt habits and history questionnaire on a pocket pc
Kıymaç, H. Esin; Baykal, Nazife; Department of Information Systems (2005)
In most of the studies, face to face interviews are required with individuals for data collection and hence to apply questionnaires. There are two methods for applying the questionnaire; the paper-based and the electronic method. The paper-based method takes time and is of a high cost to the researchers. Because of writing/reading based errors, this method may cause inaccuracy in collected data. On the contrary, conducting questionnaires in electronic environment procures savings in cost and time, improves ...
A New top-down approach to knowledge management /
Cenik, İsmail; Yıldırım, İbrahim Soner; Özkan Yıldırım, Sevgi; Department of Information Systems (2014)
This study aimed to develop and examine a novel structure for knowledge documentation, knowledge management procedures, and organizational changes to increase the efficiency of knowledge acquisition. This was done by both taking knowledge confidentiality issues into consideration and the combination of software, hardware, process-ware and people-ware dimensions within a defense sector software company. This study utilized the developmental research method to answer the research questions. Data was collected...
Frequency-driven late fusion-based word decomposition approach on the phrase-based statistical machine translation systems
Önem, İsmail Melih; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur; Department of Computer Engineering (2013)
Recommender systems are very popular in information systems and in the research community, where many different approaches geared towards giving better recommendations have been proposed. In this thesis, we propose a methodology that uses social network information to improve the performance of recommender systems. Our proposed methodology heuristically improves the success rate and performance of recommendation algorithms using social distance measures on a dataset that comprises people in professional occ...
