Abstract

In spite of increased use of information and communication technologies in every field, E-learning is not widely used in Higher Education as there prevails a myth that it is an inferior way of education and also due to its own shortcomings. In this article the advantages as well as the disadvantages of E-learning are listed. Then the solutions such as Blended Learning and Adaptive Learning embedded with Gamification, Group Dynamics and Graphic Organizers and Multimedia packages to solve the impediments are dealt with. The population of the study included the teaching staff and undergraduate students of An Nabhanya College of Science and Arts, Qassim University, KSA. About 60 Questionnaires are distributed amongst them. Questionnaires are designed consisting three parts. The first part deals with the number of courses where e-learning is implemented and the second part lists the benefits availed by the teachers and students by E-Learning. The third part enlists the problems faced by the students and the instructors during E-Learning. The study indicates that there is a poor milieu as far as educational environment is concerned due to the boredom of e-learning, there is also the lack of proper resources, PCs, Wi-Fi’s and study materials and also, procrastination, lack of motivation, lack of serious Assignments. Moreover there is also a dearth of well trained and experienced Instructors and technical staff in the campus. Thereby this paper insists that concentration is to be bestowed on Blended Learning and adaptive E-learning as tools to overcome the disadvantages. Also this article suggests that the teaching staff should be provided with many professional Development Sessions and Workshops in E-Learning, Blended -Learning Adaptive E-Learning. It also suggests that there can be availability of a technical staff for each programme in the colleges to develop the staff professionally and give them moral and technical support as and when required as well.
