The advent of the twenty-first century has seen a number of technological developments which affect almost every aspect of our lives. At the core of this is the ever-growing use of ICT in all realms of life, from the workplace to the sports field, in schools and on a personal or social level.
Although e-learning technologies are generally accepted in education institutions, their role entirely depends on the acceptance and execution of required change in the thinking and behaviour of the developers and users of institutions. It is very hard to change the behaviours, cultural bonds and lifestyle of the users in the educational institutions.
Educators, Learners and Administrators are used to traditional pedagogy and educational administration and research are constantly reporting that many e-learning projects are falling short of their objectives due to many reasons but on the top are the user resistance to change according to the digital requirements of new era. It is argued that the suitable way for change management in e-learning environment is the training and persuading of users with a view to enhancing their Digital Literacy and thus gradually changing the users’ attitude in positive direction.
Education is core to a country’s sustainable vision for the future. South Africa is a country that has overcome many obstacles and barriers from a previously unequitable education system and has made much progress in the effort to provide a free and fair education system for all. There are many steps in the journey of progress that still need to be made to improve the education system and ultimately contribute towards the realisation of sustainable economic growth. We at Bhelela recognise that this momentous task requires both innovation and effort. It is visible in our business direction and continuous refinement of developed products and services that we know making the right effort towards attaining this goal.
