We administered 2,189 questionnaires on students pursuing the professional examinations in Malaysia. A total of 453 usable questionnaires were received.

pioneers (35%), skeptics (39%), paranoids (14%) and technology laggards

intentions of e-learning system; they exhibited positive attitudes towards elearning,
and perceived that e-learning system was easy to use and was useful
