Abstract [en]

E-learning is a form of education that is increasingly being used in higher education in the developed world. However, the

take-up and use of e-learning in developing countries is at a preliminary stage. This thesis deals with e-learning in the context

of a developing country. The aim of the study was to describe and understand teachers’ beliefs about e-learning in higher

education at UMSA. Qualitative semi-structured interviews and observations were used to identify 10 teachers’ beliefs about

e-learning. The Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge framework was used for analysing the interviews and

observations. Teachers’ showed varying levels of knowledge about technology, pedagogy and content, as well as varying

knowledge levels about different combinations of these three knowledge domains. Despite the limited educational resources

at Universidad Mayor de San Andrés (UMSA), most teachers’ believed e-learning is beneficial for themselves and their

students
