The use of virtual learning technology has increased rapidly in university teaching. The introduction of e-learning has led to rapid change which has impacted both the learners and the educators. The increasing use of technology in all aspects of life, as well as in the education sector, motivated Libyan universities to update their processes and make the technology the main factor in their education systems. This paper will analyse students‟ feedback for some Libyan students who studied abroad, thereby evaluating the e-learning environment as an effective support to face-to-face learning. The actual research was conducted with 30 Libyan students; the findings reflect the fifteen percent who responded to the questionnaire. The questionnaire comments and suggestions reported by students on e-learning are also reflected in the results. The reported findings focus on participants‟ attitudes towards and their satisfaction with technology. The article concludes by commenting on the prospects of e-leaning in the UK.
