In this study, the aim is to examine the impact of teacher candidates’ readiness and attitudes towards mobile learning on the acceptance of mobile learning systems. This is a quantitative research and the study group comprises of 195 prospective teachers who were studying at a university in Northern Cyprus in the 2017-2018 academic year. During the research, the mobile learning readiness scale, mobile learning attitude scale and acceptance of mobile learning systems scale developed by the researchers were used as data collection tools. The relationship between the readiness and attitude towards mobile learning with the acceptance of mobile learning systems was also examined. Based on the collected data, the relationship between readiness, attitude and acceptance has been demonstrated to be positive; it has been also observed that attitude and readiness towards mobile learning have a significant effect on the acceptance of mobile learning systems. According to the results obtained from this research, it can be said that as readiness and attitude levels are increasing in a positive sense, it is likely that the acceptance of mobile learning systems by the users will be increased accordingly.
