E-learning has evolved over the past years with many universities following the growing trend of incorporating online courses into their institutions. This four year public institution has not been left behind in its quality enhancement plan (QEP). QEP is designed to enhance online learning resulting in an E-focused environment. Surveys of faculty and students at the institution, however, show the potential difficulties faced in online learning. Inadequate training, lack of motivation, and poor time management are some of the major factors affecting student performance. This study assesses and investigates the progression of online learning and proposes approaches to enhance online learning. Data was collected to compare campus-based and online courses and monitor their progression over the years. Campus-based courses still have a higher pass rate than online courses, with an increase in passing rates over a three year period. The results serve as a baseline for improving online learning procedures and outcomes over the next five years.
