Abstract

The advantages offered by e-learning have been identified by distance learning institutions and educators as one of the emerging tools to improve the quality of learning. This study attempted to investigate factors that were believed to affect student acceptance of e-learning in Indonesian Open Learning University. The factors identified were computer self-efficacy, technological factors, instructional design and instructor characteristics, that were examined to predict their contribution to Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), the model adopted in the study. The findings suggest several implications and contributions to the e-learning body of knowledge and concepts. The result provides interesting insights where Instructional Design and Technological Factors were shown to be predictors of both Perceived ease of Use and Perceived Usefulness. Consistent with previous studies, Computer Self-efficacy and Instructor Characteristics appeared to be predictors of Perceived Usefulness.
