In the last few decades, the implementation of information technology has given rise to several organizational training needs that have to be satisfied, in order to empower organizational IT performance. The users of new technologies have to be trained quickly and efficiently, and since they are usually distributed to different remote locations, web-based training is the preferred, and sometimes the only, process for employee training. This study deals with the prognosis of employees' intention to use a web-based training process, by extending the technology acceptance model using some other related factors, such as learning goal orientation, management support, enjoyment, self-efficacy and computer anxiety. Two hundred and eighty seven employees participated in this study to test the validity of the research model. The findings of the structural equation modeling indicate that enjoyment, perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use directly affect employees' intention to use web-based training, while learning goal orientation has the strongest indirect impact on employees' intention. Finally, three new causal relations are proposed for further research. (Contains 6 tables and 2 figures.)
