In order to meet the exponentially growing demand of higher education, implementation of e-learning is an ideal choice for the universities. And the introduction of the concept of blended learning model is a natural start for the implementation of elearning solutions for the universities in developing countries which is pursued by many organizations in rich economies. When organizations are in the process of implementation of new type learning, a number of factors come into play. Some factors are about the technology, others about the prospective users, still others about the local context of use and the associated costs [Wilson et al. 2002]. This paper sought to study the readiness of organizations seeking to implement blended learning in constrained low bandwidth environment with an emphasis on university settings and proposes an e-readiness model. The study employed three types of instruments; Institutional Readiness Questionnaire, Lecturers’ Perception Questionnaire, and Students’ Perception Questionnaire.
