This paper examines the impact of E-learning and the ICT in the Higher Education (HE) in Libya and UK. A comprehensive analysis of the problems linked to the use of e-learning and ICT in Libyan institutions is performed. It is obvious the pronounced information technology (IT) gap
between Libya and the developed world due to social, political and economic conditions in an Arab country where the primary delivery educational model is essentially traditional. Then possible ways of implementing successfully e-learning and ICT in Libyan educational institutions by considering positive UK examples are explored.
