Abstract

This paper provides an overview the current trends and the policy issues for e-learning implementation in Libyan universities LUs.; where is present a sample model to comparative between two questionnaires in 2009& 2013; as a technique to evolution the e-learning policy implementation process in LUs. The paper emphasizes that in spite of the drawbacks faced by most HE institutions, some have managed to successfully introduce e-learning into their strategies.
This paper concludes brief considerations of issues of the implementation policy; difficulties in the process and other challenges.
Finally the paper aims into: Provision of a study on overall difficulties of the followed policy initiatives of e-learning implementation into the decision-makers in LUs; provision of conception to the developers to consider the strength and the weakness points when new strategies mode. And provision a set of suggestions for improving the effectiveness of the e-learning systems usage in Libyan HE based on the results of these SWOT analyses.
