Abstract

Abstract: This paper offers a suggested framework of a successful implementation plan for a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) in a higher education institution (HEI). Discussion focuses on the need for an effective approach to change management that is flexible and able to vary in pace according to the needs of users. The framework is developed based on the e-learning change management literature and on the literature which is based on the experience of a number of universities around the world. The key features of the framework focus on the transformation of academic practice by training; and accommodation of the needs of the individuals within an institution whilst smoothly making a difference to everyday working practices. It also suggests a gradual implementation and takes into account the institutional context. The paper also presents an investigation and identification of the main reasons behind resistance to change to the acceptance and adoption a VLE.
