E-learning has considerable financial, social and organisational advantages. However, e-learning use among professional workplaces remains limited comparing to traditional methods. This raises the problem of factors influencing the adoption of e-learning among human resource management practices. This paper tries to identify and test determinants of e-learning use by workers. Technology adoption theories developed in information system researches offer a conceptual framework to apprehend key factors that influence workers' intention to use e-learning. Empirical study conducted on 350 Tunisian employees suggests the importance of their perceptions of usefulness, ease of use and computer self-efficacy judgments as key determinants of e-learning acceptance. Theoretical and Managerial implications for researchers and human resource managers are derived from the results of this research.
