Abstract

In the past decade, e-learning systems are being used in many universities and schools. Although e-learning has various benefits, understanding learners’ attitudes toward it is still a critical issue. In an attempt to study and explain individual’s attitudes and behaviors in using e-learning, we focus on gender difference, computer experience, self-efficacy, and motivation. 424 university students use the Blackboard system and answer a questionnaire after using it for two months. The results demonstrate male students have more positive e-learning attitudes, computer experience is a positive predictor on e-learning attitudes, and self-efficacy and motivation, including intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, are significantly predictive factors for behavioral intention of using e-learning.
