Increasingly, a number of universities worldwide including some in Africa are making positive attempts to implement e-learning strategies in order to enhance equity, quality, share instruction technology resources, compete in global environment of higher education and meet the rising demand for tertiary education. The problems that bedevil Africa’s tertiary education sector are compelling for the implementation of e-learning strategies.
