Abstract: Technology is pervading all areas of education and training. The use of interactive whiteboards is on the increase in our local primary schools. The use of learning management systems and e-learning platforms are encouraged throughout the higher education sector. Increasingly, mandatory courses for staff are provided in the form of online training, for example: manual handling and emergency response training. This research was undertaken to establish students and lecturers opinions regarding the use of Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). In the context of this study, the terms Technology Enhanced Learning and E-Learning refer to the use of technological tools as an enhancement to existing teaching methods in the form of blended learning. Overall, a significant number of students and lecturers were of the opinion that the use of Technology Enhanced Learning was having a positive effect on the learning experience of students. The final conclusion was that e-learning blended with other teaching methods when used effectively, further improves the learning experience and better prepares students for work.
