Institutions integrate e-learning in their teaching and learning process with the aim of improving quality of education. Unfortunately, not all the higher learning organisations have incorporated e-learning into their systems due to challenges they encounter in their efforts to implement it. The purpose of this study was to unearth the constraints to e-learning implementation. The study examined the challenges faced by teachers, challenges faced by the institution and how this could be used to ensure proper elearning. Quantitative research methodology was used and the main targets of the study were lecturers and managers of Taletso FET Campus. Research findings showed that main challenges to e-learning implementation were cost; lack of financial support and management's perception that e-learning is too expensive. Based on the findings, it is recommended that management evaluate its' perception of e-learning; otherwise the quality of education will be compromised. Further, the management should look for resources from the government and nongovernmental organisations by sharing their desires and intentions concerning e-learning implementation. If this is not done, the institution will risk lagging behind in terms of the provision of quality education.
