Despite a recommendable deployment of the new technologies into the higher learning institutions, there is low adoption rate and the use of the eLearning platforms among many university lecturers in the country. This paper aims at analysing the factors that impact on the university instructors’ effective use of the technology hence looking at the eLearning implementers’ capabilities to benefit from the platforms in their teaching processes. Sen’s Capability Approach was used as conceptual lens to examine university instructors’ phenomena. Data was collected through in-depth interviews with 23 random sampled university instructors from nine higher learning institutions. The results of the study show that personal, social and environmental factors are preventing some university instructors from realising their potential capabilities from using eLearning platforms.
