The Technology-Organization-Environment (TOE) framework and the E-Learning literature were used to analyze thefactors which may influence this implementation and adoption. A questionnaire whichconsists of twenty nine questions divided into three parts: Technological factors(Information Systems (IS) infrastructure and IS expertise), Organizational factors(organizational compatibility and organizational benefits), and Environmental factors(competitive pressure and educational partner readiness) were written. Theimplementation success is characterized by two dimensions Internal Integration andExternal Diffusion. This questionnaire data gathered from 120 faculty members in theIMoHE were employed to test the relationships between the research models constructsusing a structural equation modeling (SEM) approach. The results reveal that ISexpertise, and Expected Benefits are key determinants of E-Learning implementationsuccess in terms of Internal Integration and External Diffusion.
