This study was carried out to identify technologies needed for sustainable e-learning in university education. To achieve this objective, two research questions and one hypothesis were formulated, answered and tested respectively. Survey research design was used and a structured questionnaire was developed for data collection. A population of 330 information managers in information system units in federal universities in Nigeriawas used for the study. The questionnaire was face-validated by three experts knowledgeable in e-learning application. An internal consistency co-efficient of 0.88 was obtained by using Cronbach alpha technique. Data collected from 322 of the respondents were analyzed for the study. Mean and standard deviation were used in data analysis, while ANOVA was used to test the hypothesis. The findings of the study revealed 13 communication technologies and 12 course management technologies needed for sustainable e-leaning in university education; and that there were no significant differences on the opinions of the information managers on 19 technologies needed for sustainable e-learning in university education. It was therefore recommended that the administrations of university education should make the identified technologies sufficiently available in order to sustain e-learning in the universities.
