Abstract—The importance of e-learning has become very
significant across the globe in recent decades. India, with a
burgeoning learning environment and huge prospect of human
capital is at the forefront of such changes. As a result,
stakeholders are increasingly opting for extensive use of
available technologies in this context. The objective of this study
is to draw the factors influencing the adoption of e-learning
technologies by school teachers. Data collected from 85 teacher
respondents through Google Forms questionnaire were
analysed. Principal Component Analysis with Varimax rotation
was then applied for the study. As a result of analysis, five
factors were drawn and renamed as Prospects: perceived and
real; Facilities: availability and accessibility; Material
challenges; Assured outcomes and Skill-based challenges. The
overall findings of the study conclude that these five factors
influence the adoption of e-learning technologies.
