This chapter sets out to inform the reader about the background of e-Learning. It starts with a brief introduction to the concept of e-Learning, presenting a compelling case why institutions implement e-Learning and describes the difference between technology-delivered e-Learning and technology-enhanced e-Learning. The discussion includes some advantages and disadvantages of technology-enhanced e-Learning and then examines some learner, facilitator and technology aspects of technology-enhanced e-Learning. It continues with a brief discussion on technology-enhanced e-Learning at the Cape Technikon. This project further assesses the perceptions of learners using an online survey to address the issues and concerns that learners experienced with regard to technology-enhanced e-Learning. This chapter also inspects the efficiency usage of e-Learning tools within a technology-enhanced e-Learning environment and concludes with some significant findings of the survey, which includes the importance of computer literacy, interaction and communication in the technology-enhanced e-Learning environment.
