Abstract

E-learning is increasingly becoming a vital component of education worldwide, and educators acknowledge the importance and potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in facilitating the educational processes. Developing countries, including Libya, are lagging behind the expansion of e-learning, mainly because they lack the necessary infrastructure and resources to support it. While the adoption of e-learning in higher education has been well researched internationally, research relating to the Libyan higher education is very limited, and studies exploring the experiences and perceptions of students and instructors involved in e-learning are particularly scarce. This study investigated how ICTs and e-learning were experienced and perceived at two higher education institutions in Libya: University of Tripoli in Libya's capital, and a regional University of Al-Jabal Al-Gharbi.
