The aims of this study were to investigate the extent and benefits of ICT usage; barriers to learning content management systems (LCMS) deployment; perception and attitude to e-learning of the academic staff in the healthcare majors at the Medical University – Plovdiv. The results indicated that the educators use technologies extensively, they are experienced with computers but this is not a predisposition for teaching in the LCMS. Staff demonstrates acceptance of e-learning and critical attitude to its implementation, but the activity in the LCMS is low. Leading barriers in e-course creation are the heavy workload and the need for support in creating interactive learning content. A training course framework is proposed.


Keywords –higher education, healthcare, e-learning, faculty staff, LCMS.
