Technology-based teaching and learning is entering academic life at an amazing rate. It comes whether invited or not. Students and lecturers are confronted with new technologies. There are new teaching methods to accompany them, and new pressures to use them. E-learning is penetrating all areas of teaching and learning: academic institutions and corporate training alike. It has been generally accepted as a major and viable component of higher education. However, it is not clear how students accept the use of new technology. This paper deals with the question of acceptance by analysing the University of Botswana engineering students' reflection on Blackboard technology.
