Because of the rapid development of the internet and multimedia technology, teaching over network has already become one way of distance education. The purpose of this research is to discuss the factors influencing teachers to involve in using of web-based teaching platforms. Base on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), three exogenous variables, personality characteristics, internal computer knowledge and external organization, were investigated to analyze teachers’ involvement in using web-based teaching platforms. The personality characteristics included two dimensions, achievement motivation and openness to experience. The external organization was measured by three dimensions, using climates, training and technology supports. For the above analysis, a casual model was constructed. As an empirical study, 122 teachers using e-learning platform of SUN NET Technology were sampled. The results indicate that the hypothesis of TAM is held, that is the perceived easy of use significantly influence that perceived usefulness. The perceived usefulness have directly effects on teacher’s involvement in using web-based teaching platforms. Furthermore, the internal computer knowledge and external organization have indirect effects on teacher’s involvement through perceived usefulness respectively. However, personality characteristic has no any significant effect on the involvement variable. The results of could provides useful reference for those schools managers who are willing to employ such teaching platform for network education and to promote teacher’s utilization of such platform.
