dc.description.abstractThis paper summarises the findings of a research project which applied the means-end chain methodology to analyse the relationship between the personal values of teachers and eLearning system functionalities. While eLearning is being promoted for implementation in learning and teaching settings, there is a lack of understanding of the critical functionalities of eLearning systems which teachers perceive are useful so that there is a likelihood that teachers will continue using eLearning systems. This paper reports that the most critical functionalities of an eLearning system for teachers can be categorized in terms of two dimensions - instruction presentation and student learning management. The instruction presentation dimension requirements include eSyllabus and electronic whiteboard, while the student learning management dimension requirements include online discussions, online roll call, threaded discussions, and assignment management. Therefore, this research indicates that where these critical functionalities are met, then teachers are more likely to develop a sense of accomplishment, self-fulfilment, fun and enjoyment, which will motivate them to continue using eLearning systems for teaching and learning.en_US
