Abstract: The need for utilization of e-learning in teaching and learning to enhance academic achievement is a global phenomenon. The process is ongoing in African nations. This study evaluated South Africa University lecturers’ accessibility and utilizations of e-learning. The study used descriptive survey, selected 160 respondents randomly using self-administered questionnaire to elicit information from the respondents. The instrument titled “Lecturers Accessibility and Utilization of E-learning Questionnaire with 0.79 reliability coefficient was obtained. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics of frequency counts and percentages. The study revealed among others that most e-learning facilities were available at the university but not adequately used for teaching as expected. It is therefore concluded that no meaningful development in teaching can take place without making the teacher who is at the central of the system to be effective. It was recommended that universities lecturers should make teaching more effective with the use of e-learning infrastructure
