Use of web-based learning environments (WBLEs)/e-learning environments in pedagogical practices in Higher Education (HE), since revolutionary reform in teaching-learning methods from traditional teaching methods to use of technology, through use of computers, has become a force as it is within every society. This study aims to identify learners’ level of acceptance and use of WBLE/e-learning environment in HE’s primary education process in Gambia, Ghana and Nigeria. This study is adapted to recent studies on “Technology Acceptance Model and E-learning” (Masrom, 2007), “Extending the Technology Acceptance Model to Account for Social Influence: Theoretical Bases and Empirical Validation” (Malhotra & Galletta, 1999), and “Students’ perceptions of E-learning at the University of Jordan” (Almarabeh, 2014). Similar to these studies, this study used the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and its findings in support of Almarabeh (2014), showed that W/A learners in HE will accept and use WBLE.
