Abstract This research examines the application of eLearning in degree courses delivered by 18 online lecturers in six countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, Norway, Spain and U.S.A.). Using an interpretivist paradigm with qualitative case studies from these six countries, the research explored current online lecturers' views on effectiveness and challenges on the use of Learning Management Systems (LMS). The study revealed that lecturers find it challenging to transfer their pedagogical skills and apply them to an online LMS, creating the need for professional development courses on LMS application in degree programs.
