Abstract

This paper examines the factors influencing the implementation of distance education by Taiwan's higher education institutions. Through survey, appropriate theoretical model and hypothesis testing, the study shows that faculty's willingness to participate in distance education is influenced by perception of usefulness of distance education, personal factors, teaching environment and acquaintance with technology skills. Perception of usefulness is in turn influenced by the faculty attitudes. Acquaintance with technology and willingness to participate will push faculty to implement distance education.
