Abstract: The purpose of this study is to examine the factors that influence e-learning adoption levels in a Jordanian education institution and modified the two theories of the DOI and D&M IS to examine the e-learning levels. This study identified the technological such as relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, information quality, system quality and service quality and organizational include top management support, structure and culture that influences the adoption of e-learning among working adults. A total of 502 adult workers currently pursuing their study at Arab Open University in Jordan were selected to be the sample for this study. Questionnaire was employed as the data collection approach for the present study. The research framework has been validated by a previous empirical study based on a questionnaire. Based on the results of this study, technological and organisational have a strong significant influence on learning adoption levels by different groups.
