In this paper, we discuss the possibility of establishing a theory of e-learning, the value of design patterns, and the possible scenarios of implementation by higher education institutions attempting to use new technologies. We present the results of a survey concerning students' and faculty members' views regarding e-learning implementation. Data collection was accomplished through a specially designed questionnaire administered to 1,938 students and 46 faculty members. Ten faculty members were also interviewed for more in-depth analysis. Based on the results of the survey, we propose a series of actions which could form the basis for developing an e-learning policy through continuous improvement of a university's teaching program and we discuss wider implications for teaching and learning.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/4419||ISSN:||1380-3611
