E-learning became the norm for thousands of university students in South Africa during the Covid-19 pandemic. E-learning provided opportunities to access learning material and flexible learning when students could not access classrooms. However, at traditional universities in South Africa, e-learning prior to the pandemic was limited at best, with no opportunity to provide training to lecturers on how to incorporate the technology into their teaching pedagogy once the pandemic started. This paper aims to determine the student perceptions of having to adapt to online learning in the Department of Accounting at a traditional university. A quantitative survey was used to collect data from 48 senior Accounting students during a semester course in 2019. The survey was based on the TPACK framework. The results showed that respondents indicated that their lecturers integrated digital tools in teaching and learning because social distancing and working from home demanded such practices. Overall, the students’ perceptions of e-learning were favourable, supported by their perceptions of their lecturers' technology skills, teaching strategies, and content knowledge.
