Abstract

This paper presents the challenges which exist in the implementation of IT and e-learning systems in
Libyan Higher Education Institutes. Over a period time, most of the HE Institutions in Libya have
introduced E-learning as one of the media of instruction in courses offered at their institutions, and in some it has proved to be a good teaching and learning method; for others, however, there have been problems in the implementation process. The paper addresses the factors which act as barriers to the creation of innovative E-learning environments of excellence amongst students in HE in Libya. The identification of those factors will bring further benefit to those HE Institutions that are finding E-learning a delight to work with, and also help those institutions that are battling with E-learning to find solutions to the issues of how to successfully implement and benefit from E-learning. This paper seeks to identify the
challenges that learners, instructors and course developers experience on the E-learning path. It has been found that a key barrier facing the implementation of E-learning is resistance to change, which is surprisingly strong amongst both academic staff and the Ministry of Education.
