    This study seeks to understand the adoption of e-learning by Higher Education Institutions from a resource-based view. Case analysis suggests the principle drivers are fear of failure, envy of success and a shortage of resources with rising numbers of students. The ability to experiment, to generate organisational learning, the redesign of learning and the ability to manage campus-wide integration of management information systems are the key capabilities in the first stages of adoption. There is little evidence of enacted strategy, but growing understanding of how to use e-learning through experimentation, and technology acquisition through outsourcing.
