In recent years, there has been a rapid increase in use of what we term Web Enhanced Instruction (WEI) by colleges and universities. Recent work by Landry (2003) and Landry et al (2006) has reported the development and an initial examination of a modification of the Davis (1989) Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to measure students' perceptions of various "elements" of a specific WEI, the Blackboard. In this research, we extend the Landry (2003) and Landry et al (2006) investigation to a minority university located in New Orleans. Our emphasis is upon examining linkages in the TAM for samples pre and post the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
