The adoption of eLearning in developing countries is rare when a comparison is made against the developed nations. Therefore, this study answered calls from numerous literature demanding for more research to investigate the adoption, usage, and application of eLearning systems and applications in Libyan higher education institutions (LHEIs) to contribute to this crucial knowledge gap. Thus, a systematic literature review (SLR) was conducted focusing on the eLearning technology acceptance theories and models and open issues and challenges facing the LHEIs. Hence, the findings revealed that the technology acceptance model (TAM) is the most dominant theoretical model applied to test the adoption of eLearning in LHEIs. The finding further revealed that there are limited studies based on other technology acceptance theories such as the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT), the theory of reasoned action (TRA), and the theory of planned behavior (TPB). Hence, this study recommends the adoption of the UTAUT framework for future research due to its foundation from eight different technology acceptance models, including the dominant TAM theory, which could offer new insights. The findings of this study have the potential for academic researchers wanting to study the acceptance and use of technology for teaching and learning especially in developing countries.
