The effects of technology acceptance and innovation diffusion behaviors on information and communications technology-enabled teaching/learning systems (ITLS) adoption attract increasing attention among primary school teachers (Wu and Liu 2015). In particular, Internet-based e-learning has been considered one of the important ICT tools for knowledge providers and receivers to create an exchange process in cyberspace for knowledge development. The system adoption is generally a multidimensional issue that needs to consider such issues as providers’ teaching behaviors (e.g., teaching cognition and ICT use preference), characteristics of ITLS (e.g., material presentation, diversity, and adaptability), and receiver’s learning behavior (e.g., learning cognition and ICT adoption propensity) (Bertacchini et al. 2012).

In particular, the provider’s teaching behavior based on his or her...
