Abstract

While the belief that e-learning can enhance teaching and learning at higher learning institutions is becoming commonplace, we conducted this study to establish how far the platform has been integrated into pedagogical processes and the individual lives of lecturers in some higher learning institutions in South Africa. We want to understand the factors that affect the integration of the platform into curriculum delivery and instructions in the institutions. The study used a qualitative research approach whereby interviews with eighteen snowball sampled participants were the data collection technique. Analysis has shown that few academics have domesticated the platform while the majority still needs professional development for e-learning to successfully integrate the technology in their curriculum delivery. That is, the majority are not yet in a position to make informed judgments on the teaching and learning platform to support their pedagogy.
