Abstract
This article aimed to assess the feasibility of implementing eLearning systems in a cloud-based infrastructure for secondary schools in Tanzania. The study adopted questionnaire and document reviews as data collection tools. A total of 820 students successfully returned the questionnaire from seven secondary schools in Tanzania. The study found that 11% of government secondary schools have computer labs with 20.1% of them connected to the Internet. Moreover, more than half of surveyed students (56.6%) have access to mobile phones at home with 53.5% using the phones to access the Internet. However, the study found the cost of the Internet has remained unaffordable to many students. This study shows that eLearning implementation in the cloud for secondary schools in Tanzania is feasible. This research will serve as a base for future studies that plan to implement eLearning systems to enhance teaching and learning in secondary schools in Tanzania.
