dc.description.abstract The Department of Telematic Learning and Education Innovation (TLEI) is a service department at the University of Pretoria, which assists and supports academic staff in education innovation projects. One of the many delivery media offered in a flexible learning environment is online learning, using the learning management system (LMS) WebCT. This article describes some of the opportunities offered by e-learning and considers how the learning theories of outcomes-based education and constructivism are accommodated by online learning. We consider some of the factors which contribute to the slow adoption of instructional technology by academic staff, as well as different categories along the adoption curve of those adopting it. A case study is presented, which explores the ongoing collaboration between TLEI and the University’s School for Public Management and Administration (SPMA). Since 1999, a journey of discovery and participation has materialised between the two parties. This article reviews the journey in the context of e-learning and considers the exciting opportunities for future growth. en_US
