The objective of this study was to examine the influencing factors in user’s intention to use STEM project-based learning: peer-to-peer in Thailand. Four hundred and five people participated in this study. All participants completed a survey including general information and forty-four items which examined using an exploratory factor analysis (EFA). Multiple regression analysis was used to examined relationships among variables associated with the influencing factors. The results showed that all of the factors of web-based collaborative learning, perceived usefulness, and perceived ease of use, lead to a positive effect on the intention to use the system with a standardized co-efficient (b = 0.151, 0.326 and 0.400, p-value < 0.05). Perceived ease of use was confirmed as the most important contribution to the intention to use the system. In addition, when users had perceived ease of use in the system, their intention to use was increased. Finally, the research was applied to the influencing factors in the system. Based on the results, we recommend that the usage of STEM project-based learning: peer-to-peer system should be closely monitored by teachers to ensure the usage frequency. Moreover, to ensure that this system can be used easily, instructional designers must focus on user-friendliness design and provide a training session for both teachers and students. Collaboration with professors and experts in the system is necessary because they have an important role for supporting STEM project-based learning: peer-to-peer in Thailand
