Abstract .Academic technologies have been used for technology-enhanced learning since the 1960s.Each new phase of development of these academic technologies has been driven by technological innovations rather than by the learning needs of the students in academic institutions. E-learning research has attempted—in the last 30 years of its existence—to keep up with these technological innovations, with research studies focusing on various aspects of e-learning in an attempt to improve the pedagogical function. Unfortunately, because most of these innovations were technologically, rather than pedagogically, based, their implementation in e-learning environments has necessitated further research to solve problems that are encountered as a result. A number of research studies have focused on student perceptions of their technological learning environments, including its perceived quality, ability to engage with the learner, and usability. The purpose of these studies, in most cases, has been to improve a localized implementation (usually within a particular module or course) of learning technologies. Student perceptions about their e-learning environment can be used to improve the implementation and continued use of new academic technologies in higher education institutions. The focus of this research is to develop an e-learning framework that can be used to implement Internet applications in higher education institutions. This research articles seeks to use two methods to evaluate a range of Internet applications that have been used for e-learning, with the objective of recommending an e-learning framework for the use of Internet applications for e-learning. The two methods that will be used are a modified SERVQUAL instrument and a WBLT (web-based evaluation tools) scale in order to evaluate students’ perceptions of their experience of the use of these Internet applications in the technology-enhanced learning environment. The e-learning framework will be modified and further developed so that it is re-usable and extendible to a wide range of higher education institutions.
