Abstract
Tanzanian Higher learning institutions (HLIs) are faced with challenges of adopting e-learning in education. This study involved experts in e-learning to examine barriers of adopting e-learning and the best strategies to address them. Five major barriers were identified: poor infrastructure; financial constraints; inadequate support; lack of e-learning knowledge and teachers’ resistance to change. The study further describes best practice approaches used by the two HLIs to address each of the challenges.

Successful adoption of e-learning requires a strategic approach that factors out barriers identified in this study and, which involve all education stakeholders.
