For keeping the competitive strengths and not being outdated, continuous learning is necessary. As the saying goes, it’s never too old to learn. Only by continuous learning, people can follow the growth of knowledge and social economy. In this knowledge explosion learning era, how to learn fast becomes a goal for learners to go after. E-Learning is an integration of digital technology and learning methods; it manages and shares the variety of teaching resources. Through today’s already developed internet environment, people are learning according to their own interests without constraints on space-time and other external conditions.
Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (Moodle) is an open source coded learning management system (LMS). It can easily construct a free, easy to use online learning digital platform. Learning management system is a software application. It can be used to construct a digital learning platform, support all of the education activities process. Because of funding constraints, choices of digital teaching platform for current secondary and elementary schools are limited. Thus, free software seems to be a better choice for them, and Moodle can just satisfy this kind of needs.
Davis proposed “Technology Acceptance Model (TAM)” in 1986 and Regers proposed “Diffusion of Innovations Theory (DIT)” in 1962. Technology Acceptance Model and Diffusion of Innovations Theory today have been widely applied in all areas’ studies. And this study plans will use TAM and DIT to discuss the influences on elementary school student’s acceptance of Moodle e-learning platform and the process of making innovation decisions, and for a further step to investigate how it affects student’s learning intention. According to this study and the results of the questionnaire, some conclusions will be suggested as follows:
1. Using attitude of the students toward the “Moodle” influences their learning intension.
2. Adoption behavior of the students about the “Moodle” influences their learning intension.
3. The students of different characters are different from using attitudes, adoption behavior and learning intension.
This study results can be used to make suggestions for elementary school’s IT education and also serve as references for importing, developing, or amending Moodle system.
