E-learning is very important in educational discipline of enterprise and should be a learning fashion in future. In the commercial competition environment that we pay much attention to cost and performance, enterprise must reduce learning cost and enhance learning effectiveness for e-learning development in the enterprise.
The purpose of this study is to understand the relationship among of self-directed learning readiness, computer attitude and e-learning effectiveness. The procedures of this study are to adopt the literature analysis and empirical study. First, to build the theoretical basis we must analyze the relative and practical research of the elder learner of domestic and foreign scholars, including reference of the theory and relative practical research of the e-learning, learning effectiveness, self-directed learning readiness and computer attitude. Second, we developed the research questionnaire according to the theoretical basis. Our study object is the employees who participate in e-learning at Taiwan Power Company and we attain the 401 effective samples.
