Abstract

The adoption of ICT-enabled teaching in contemporary schools has largely ragged behind despite its obvious and many benefits, mainly because teachers still hold ignorant, misinformed and highly negative attitudes towards ICT-enabled teaching. This article aimed at investigating the effect of Virtual Learning Environments (VLE) on university teachers’ attitudes towards using ICT in their teaching, and to further develop a best-practice model for use by stakeholders currently interested in promoting the use of ICT in education. VLE experience can positively shape teachers’ attitudes towards using ICT, which would in turn increase the adoption of ICT-aided teaching in contemporary schools. The article argues that when university teachers participate regularly in VLEs, their attitudes towards the use of ICT improves. It is thus recommended that learning institutions and universities should invest in creating productive, regular and readily accessible VLEs for their teaching staff, as an important support incentive to any ICT program deployment
