Abstract

Emerging digital technologies and increasing interest in the computerized delivery of higher education have led to e-learning through electronic mail, the Internet, the World Wide Web (WWW), and multimedia. Issues such as the confidence with which college faculty integrate technology in their teaching, plagiarism and communication remain as important unresolved questions. Considering these, the marketplace of learners is not responding to e-learning as anticipated. Understanding the importance of information systems, and of efforts to ensure that faculty use technology, as well as recognition of the marketplace, a framework has been developed for success with e-learning. Reviews the selected definitions of e-learning. A critical review of literature is provided with a view to developing a more practical framework for achieving success in e-learning. Also, some reported case experiences are briefly discussed. Suggestions for future research are presented.
