The adoption of e-learning technology in Indonesia is limited partly because of user rejection. While one rejecting user is teachers, they play an important role to succeed the implementation of e-learning as they provide e-learning content. Thus, this study aims at investigating factors that affect teacher's intention in using e-learning. In doing so, we employ Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to assess such factors which consist of several variables: perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, and intention to develop and offer e-learning course. In addition to TAM, we add three external factors namely facilitating condition, experience, and self-efficacy. As a case study, we analyze the implementation of e-learning in SMP Negeri 1 Jember. We develop a questionnaire based on the model and elicit data for capturing teacher's intention in SMP Negeri 1 Jember. We utilize Structural Equation Model (SEM) to analyze our hypothesis. The result from this study shows that self-efficacy has a positive correlation toward perceived ease of use. Moreover, this correlation is the only hypothesis that being supported, while the others are being rejected. Another interesting finding is that even though the hypothesis expressing that experience has a positive correlation toward perceived usefulness is rejected, the study shows the opposite result that experience has a negative correlation toward perceived usefulness.
