E-Learning has been advocated by several university professors and researchers as one of pertinent method in the education system in the current society context of busy schedules and dual responsibilities of adult learners. However, due to many cultural, governmental and technological reasons, the state of e-Learning in Libya's HE has not been to an adequate level. This paper aims to shows the outcomes of several studies, which discover the effect of national and international ethos and methods to education on the usefulness of manipulating, applying and utilizing e-Learning schemes and machinery in Libya's Higher Education institutions.

The measurable and qualitative inquiry of the replies show numerous complications connected to the utilization of e-Learning and, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Libyan universities.
