There are more universities in Taiwan have incorporated e-learning as the main teaching system. However, it is a critical issue to understand learners' attitudes toward the system. Therefore, the purpose of this research was to test an e-learning attitudes scale on Taiwan Ming Chuan University (TMCU) students using the Moodle system in Taiwan. The study group comprised of 324 students and the overall scale and subscale proved to be highly reliable. The questionnaire was taken from Liaw (2008), and approved by them in 2009. After factor analysis, five factors were extracted from 26 items: Perceived usefulness & behavioral intention (8 items), e-learning effectiveness (5 items), e-learning system satisfaction (5 items), perceived self-efficacy & satisfaction (5 items), and multimedia instruction (3 items). Through application of a secondary confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) test, the construct validity of the scale was empirically constructed.
