In many developing countries, e-learning is still regarded as an innovative mode of learning. Experience shows that transferring technologies can provoke the adoption of e-learning, only if people are willing and their attitude is positive for adoption. In fact, adoption of e-learning is related to the learners’ attitude and prior experience of e-learning. In order to understand the attitude of extension workers to e-learning and their experience, this study was conveyed in Iran. From 2745 extension workers at line level in MoA, 379 were chosen on a random basis to fill in the questionnaires. Results showed that the extension workers’ attitude to e-learning is generally positive and in most aspects relevant to the learners' prior experience. In order to improve the extension workers’ attitude to e-learning, it is necessary to be aware of the results from prior experience. For those who do not have prior experience of e-learning, it is necessary to plan the new experience with more similarities to the traditional mode of learning.
Key words: E-learning, attitude, agricultural extension, extension workers.
