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.
