The effectiveness of e-learning depends on technological support, institutional culture, staff development and students’ receptivity and learning behaviours. Learners expect online interactivity. Successful online delivery requires shifts, both in understanding and behaviours, for the change in pedagogical curriculum development. This paper proposes a research framework to investigate the current elearning diffusion in construction-related programmes in UK’s higher education and the effect of organisational (and/or national) culture on students’ learning behaviours and e-learning effectiveness.
