Adopting e-learning represents one of the major problems in faculty development plans at Egyptian universities. In this study, a survey was developed, validated, and carried out to examine the readiness of academic staff at South Valley University in Egypt to develop and implement e-learning in their teaching. The survey was also used to determine how support systems and procedures for staff could be further developed to enable the University to make the most effective and appropriate use of learning technologies to enhance the student and staff experience. The results revealed that the majority of respondents, who came from a wide range of faculties across the University, considered themselves to have limited competence and little experience in e-learning. However, they perceived e-learning to be useful in general and to have the potential to support their teaching-related activities in particular.
