Drawing on results from a Universities and Colleges Information Systems Association (UCISA) 2008 survey of technology enhanced learning use in UK universities, this paper highlights support issues that impact on achieving academic engagement. It will crossreference factors that were identified by respondents to the survey as encouraging development or that act as barriers with how TEL is supported. These sector wide findings will then be reflected upon with reference to two UK universities that represent the traditional binary divide in type of university in the UK. Lack of time is identified as a primary barrier with staff development as the primary remedy.
