The introduction of e-learning has allowed companies to re-engineer the process in which training is conducted, whilst realising the benefits that e-learning has to offer. It is important to identify and understand the driving forces behind users’ behavioural intention to use ICT and elearning in order to improve the chances of success of these projects. The purpose of this paper is to explore the intention to use e-learning in a corporate context. A case study approach with a survey strategy was used and the case was a South African software development company that has identified e-learning as part of its management strategy. A theoretical model of the intention to use e-learning is proposed and is used to guide the research. The results showed that the respondents have positive intentions to use e-learning and positive computer self-efficacy whereas they rated their computer anxiety negatively. From these results and the theoretical model it can be deduced that respondents will have positive intentions to use e-learning. Possible limitations of this study are that it only investigates one company and it does not investigate the relationship between the three constructs and the intention to use.
