E-learning is one of many delivery methods in teaching-learning. E-learning can be used as synchronous learning or asynchronous learning. In Indonesia e-learning development has been around for 10 years but there have been no indications of satisfactory results. This is shown from the rank of e-learning readiness on Indonesia, 52nd of 60 countries in 2003 and 60th of 60 countries in 2005. The questions to be raised are: what factors hindered the implementation of e-learning in Indonesia and what factors should be considered in e-learning development? For a reference to this study, the following factors were considered: resources, education and environment. Resources include technology availability (hardware and software), technological readiness, teachers' and students' capability (human resources), and funding availability (economic readiness). The educational aspect includes learning content availability (content readiness) and availability of regulation in e-learning and digital pedagogy standardisation (educational readiness). The environment aspect includes recognition and appreciation of the superior (leadership readiness) and cultural readiness as represented by the fact that e-learning should be part of everyday working activities and [an] organisation should provide an environment that encourages people to use the technology. Empirical and literature studies show that educational and environmental factors represent the main hindrance in developing e-learning in Indonesia. Therefore, e-learning development in Indonesia should be redesigned, not only by considering resources factors, but also by integrating both factors, educational and environmental, in a convergent way.
