The outbreak of COVID-19 the world over brought about an abrupt change to every facet of life. The higher education sector was not left out of the pandemic's impact. Universities in developing nations migrated from traditional face-to-face learning to e-learning suddenly with very little preparation and training. Stakeholders within private tertiary institutions of Nigeria experienced many challenges in the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 sessions. The impact still shapes research, administration and learning in Nigerian universities. This study investigated the challenges experienced by the Caleb University architecture students on the e-learning platform during the lockdown in the year 2020 with the view to developing a framework for future application of e-learning in tertiary institutions in Nigeria. The methodology engaged quantitative and qualitative methods of enquiry, with a students' population (N=217) considered for this study. Also, close-ended questionnaires based on Sloven's sample size (n=69) determination were administered, and a quota sampling technique was adopted. The SPSS software was used in the data analysis. Results indicated a causal relationship between specific amenities and a good learning experience. The result revealed that poor internet sources (connectivity) and insufficient power supply hindered a good e-learning experience. The results suggest a need for infrastructural development at university, sectorial, regional and national level in Nigeria, to cope seamlessly with the trend of migration to a digital world.
