The study examined a technology acceptance model (TAM) perspective on electronic learning using
Polytechnic students. The study was conducted on Politeknik Negeri Semarang students who had and
were using Elnino as official electronic learning, using structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis.
Empirically the results presented a technology acceptance model in online learning, with the determinant
of behavioral intentions is the perception of belief in the usefulness of Elnino. At the same time, the
attitude towards the use of Elnino is determined by the perception of belief in the usefulness, ease of use,
and social, environmental norms of Polines students. Self-confidence and accessibility on the Elnino have
an indirect effect on the use attitude, through the perception of belief in the usefulness and ease of use of
Keywords: E-Learning, technology acceptance, attitude of e-learning, behaviroal intention
