Abstract

This paper examines factors affecting the use and adoption of e-learning at Higher Education Institutions with lessons learned from the University of the Witwatersrand. Understanding the nature of these factors may assist South African universities in promoting the use of information and communication technology in teaching and learning. Data was collected through a survey of lecturers from the University of Witwatersrand. The technology adoption model (TAM) is utilized in this study. One more independent variable is added to the original model, namely, perceived credibility. These factors are Computer Self-Efficacy, perceived usefulness of e-learning, perceived ease of e-learning use, Perceived Credibility, and Behavioural Intention to Use e-learning.
