Abstract: The current generation of learners have been referred to as 'digital natives' in reflection of their apparent ease and familiarity with digital technology. However, questions remain about how prepared students are for university e learning environments. This research explores student and staff perceptions of the level of preparedness for students for a university e-learning environment mediated by a Learning Management System. Findings suggest that while students may be reasonably prepared to deal with the technology of e-learning, for activities such as, reading and writing, being clear and concise in responses, synthesizing ideas, planning strategies, making arguments, and working with others, students are not well prepared.
