Abstract

While many frameworks are available for eLearning and Information Systems, there is a fundamental lack of understanding of unifying these two elements for use in a university teaching sector. ELearning is trying to find a place where it can fit neatly without too much confusion, however, this has still yet to occur. To eliminate this confusion eLearning Information Systems (ELIS) require a framework that is easy to follow and can adapt to the specific needs of the higher educational sector. This preliminary research provides insights into the problems faced by academics with integrating technology into their classroom. Overall, the results have indicated that using a framework that is widely accepted in industry and adapting it to use within a classroom have been encouraging. We suggest that with further trials and understanding of this industry framework, would help with the overall engagement of the student in the classroom would improve and consequently this would also have a productive effect on the academic delivering the subject.
