dc.description.abstractThis research identifies the factors that affect adoption e-learning technologies in Ugandan High Education Institutions. Despite the enormous potential that e-learning technologies have in enhancing teaching and learning at Higher Educational institutions, the adoption of such technologies in Ugandan Higher Educational institutions is low. Effective adoption of such technologies requires that a number of issues be taken into account which among these includes technological and individual factors. To attain the objective of this study, a questionnaire was used to collect data from 380 participants (students, lecturers and ICT support) from four Ugandan Higher Education Institutions. Results showed that factors that are affecting adoption of e-learning technologies in Ugandan HEIs were; Patronage, Compatibility, Trialability, Complexity, Relative Advantage, Perceived Usefulness, and Perceived Ease of Use while as Observability factor did not influence behavioral intention to adopt e-learning technologies in Ugandan HEIs. This study concludes that well-designed trainings should be provided for the students, lecturers and ICT support staff to familiarize them with the fundamental knowledge on how to use the e-learning technologies in Ugandan HEIs as well as trial opportunities to build a better understanding in the operational functions.en_US
