E-learning is a suitable area for the emergence of talents and increases the efficiency of educational process. Hence, a growing wave of e-learning is emerging in Iran, and educational institutions, especially universities are trying to offer trainings with standard structures according to organizational capabilities. This study was aimed to provide a model for developing e-learning in Islamic Azad University, Tehran Medical Sciences Branch. This qualitative study used the grounded theory approach and its statistical population included the professors and administrators of the university. Using the purposive sampling approach, a total of 15 people were selected as participants. Data were collected in 2016 using interviews with the general guidance method in a semi-structured manner. Data analysis was done in three stages (open, axial and selective coding), which revealed seven general categories in a paradigmatic model, including casual conditions (management and leadership); focal category (technical and technological factors and pedagogical factors); actions and interactions (human factors), infrastructure; and consequences. With the adoption of e-learning in the studied university and planning for implementing the underlying model designed based on the grounded theory approach, it seems that the preparation of other infrastructure and equipment needed for this technology at the enterprise and academic levels, as a supplement to this system, will have a significant role in its progress.
