“The Impact and Effectiveness of E-Learning on Teaching and Learning”
by Riah E. and Jhonna S.
This paper provides an indication of the effectiveness and impact of E-Learning on teaching and learning of undergraduate courses on Information Technology and English Language and Communication at Al Musanna College of Technology. Teachers (n = 70) and students (n = 162) experiences were evaluated by utilizing mixed methodology through online surveys. The study revealed that teachers and students have fluctuating levels of agreement in relation to five criteria of effectiveness. Teachers scored remarkably higher in relation to Content Quality, Collaboration, and System Quality while students rated Assessment, Collaboration, System Quality, and Technical Support at a satisfactory level. E-learning had a positive impact on teaching and learning styles; thus, teachers and students considered E-Learning to be an effective tool to enhance the knowledge acquisition skills.
