Advancement in the development and application of Digital Technology has immensely contributed to innovative approaches to teaching and learning in tertiary institutions of developed countries.Overtime, inadequacy and abstraction of conventional teaching materials had been a bane of bringing the interest of students to learning as the adoption of digitized method to course management in developing countries is in its infancy still and the success of E-based learning hasdepended on stakeholder’s support as well as student adoption of the e-learning services. In the wake of the covid-19 pandemic and lockdownthe need for e-learning cannot be overemphasized. In this research, the Blended E-Learning Management System, and the evaluation of students’ e-learning readiness in tertiary institutions of Nigeria was appraised. A hundred students from two federal higher institution of learning were selected for the survey using an amended version of the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology, (UTAUT) model. The UTAUT model which is one of the comprehensive and robust modelcaptures all the essential elements such as performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, facilitating condition, self-efficacy, attitude toward using technology and anxiety. Data collected were statistically analyzed using both descriptive and qualitative approach. The result suggests that, students in tertiary institutions are readily prepared to adopt e-learning if the facilities are made available.
