Internet-based learning systems are important both in higher education institutions and in business life. Although the expected benefit is large, the number of users and adoption rate of internet-based learning systems cannot reach sufficient levels. The aim of this study is to conduct an exploratory study for the adoption of internet-based learning systems by the instructor by scanning the existing literature and to develop more effective application opportunities. Within the scope of the study, an expanded Technology Acceptance Model is obtained by adding information quality, system quality, service quality, self-efficacy, subjective norm, perceived ease of use, perceived benefit, purpose of use and system usage variables to the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and the resulting model are evaluated. In the study, 154 university lecturers were surveyed electronically and the collected data were analyzed using structural equation modeling to verify the proposed theoretical model.. The results of the research further illuminate the factors that require the adoption of internet-based learning systems in education.
