The purpose of this survey study was to determine if Taiwanese elementary school teachers’ satisfaction with teacher-version electronic textbooks differed because of demographic differences. Furthermore, the current study investigated the mediating effect of perceived environmental factors on the relationship between teachers’ information literacy and satisfaction with electronic textbooks. The participants were 756 teachers at elementary schools in all areas of Taiwan. The major findings of this study were as follows: (1) In general, teachers were satisfied with the use of electronic textbooks. The dimension of “convenience” received the most favorable score. (2) “Number of school classes,” “school region,” and “teaching in remote/non-remote areas” had significant effects on satisfaction with electronic textbooks. (3) Environmental factors exhibited a mediating effect between teachers’ information literacy and satisfaction with electronic textbooks. This study discussed the statistical results obtained and proposed suggestions and implications for teachers and future studies.
