Abstract

Technology in education continues to generate interest and discussion amongst scholars, educators, and students. Most research on eLearning has focused on the perceptions of students. Reasons for adoptions of technology have often been tied to macro-factors such as profit, competitive advantage, and innovation. In our studies we examined the overall attitude of faculty members to eLearning to gain a better understanding of the prevailing perceptions as tertiary institutions continue to move towards blended and online instructional models. This paper investigates the adoption of eLearning using Davis’ Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and Ajzen’s Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB) as it relates to the attitudes, beliefs and skills of the faculty.
