How to effectively share knowledge in e-learning environments has been given a great deal of attention in practice as well as in research. However, most of current approaches are based on the knowledge sharing within organizations. In this study, we attempt to examine how the factors affect knowledge sharing. Based on the theory of motivation, this study is focused on an individual's learning behavior by investigating their attitude towards knowledge sharing. Four variables, namely learner autonomy, self-efficacy, intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, were examined as influential factors affecting learner's attitude towards knowledge sharing
