This paper is intended as a contribution to the debate about the use of Blackboard (Bb) as a Virtual Learning Environment in a blended approach to learning in a higher educational institution. The use of a case study seems necessary to illustrate the impact of administrative and attitudinal issues to highlight those surrounding e-learning in higher education. This paper provides an overview of the applications of teaching and learning theories in the practice of e-learning using Bb, while considering some of the lecturers and students concerns, which might have posed as resistance for adopting the e-learning strategy effectively. It then recommends how such educational change in the approach of using Bb can be managed for educational success.
