The global forces of change - political, social, economic and educational - require that lecturers and students be Information and Communication Technology (ICT) literate and able to embrace the uptake of new technologies. eLearning is now prevalent in higher education and promotes the use of ICT literacies. Introducing eLearning at a university with a tradition of face-to-face teaching and learning has unique challenges. To incorporate new technologies into existing curricula requires a university 10 understand the highly varied skills of its lecturers and students in using lCTs. Encouraging lecturers to shift from using traditional pedagogy along a continuum of eDelivery to eLearning lakes time and considerable commitment by an institution in terms of financial and human resources. This paper outlines and reflects upon the steps taken by a university in integrating a Learning Management System to enhance the learning and teaching experience at the institution.
