Summary: This study proposes the theories of the electronic learning and technology acceptance model to help promote acceptance rate of web-based learning and auxiliary training for technical and vocational college students. The study discusses the external factors, perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, satisfaction toward E-learning tools and intention of use. A survey was conducted with technical and vocational college students, and 400 effective samples were received. The findings are as follows: 1. The perceived ease of use shows positive correlations with \lq\lq frequency of internet use” and \lq\lq function and interaction of web-based learning”. 2. The perceived usefulness shows positive correlations with \lq\lq frequency of internet use” and \lq\lq function and interaction of web-based learning”. 3. The perceived ease of use has a positive correlation with the perceived usefulness. 4. The perceived ease of use shows positive correlations with outcomes of using E-learning tools, content of E-learning tools and overall satisfaction. 5. The perceived usefulness has a positive correlation with the intention of use. 6. The intention of use shows positive correlations with outcomes of using E-learning tools, content of E-learning tools and overall satisfaction. 7. The perceived usefulness and overall satisfaction of using E-learning tools have a significant effect on intention of use with a predicted loading of 47.7\%. Intention of use and overall satisfaction are the most influential factors. Therefore, the research suggests special emphasis on the enhancements of learners’ self-efficacy on the internet and of the interaction between the instructor and the student body in activities. The options of web-based learning and auxiliary training can make this process more flexible, and thus the features of E-learning and its goal can be maximized.
