Electronic technology (E-learning) is increasingly playing a greater role in tertiary education. While the benefits of E-learning are recognised, a number of challenges are presented. The aim of  my PhD study, therefore, was to explore issues impacting on the use of E-learning by Australian students and academics in the undergraduate nursing curriculum. This Mixed Method study found that while undergraduate nursing students frequently used the internet and social media for personal interaction, they lacked the computer information literacy skills necessary to undertake University studies.

The results also indicated that nursing academics were willing to implement E-learning in the curriculum. However, there was a need for greater leadership support and resources to enable its implementation. With the increased adoption of E-learning in education and computer information technology , it is imperative that students and academics are provided with the time, resources and computer skills necessary to enable students to successfully complete their course and meet the challenges of the technologically evolving world.
