E-learning is increasingly becoming a vital stream and modern model of education worldwide, including developing countries. While the potential benefits of e-learning for developing countries have been discussed in the literature, there is limited research on the perspectives of elearning among users in developing countries. User perspectives, including their attitudes towards e-learning, beliefs about e-learning, as well as satisfaction with technology and past e-learning experiences are regarded as determinants of success of future e-learning initiatives. In Libya elearning has been a major focus of e-Libya policy and it has the potential to play a vital role in redeveloping Libya’s higher education system and assisting students and instructors. This article presents selected descriptive findings from a case study carried out at two Libyan Universities on experiences with and perceptions of using ICTs and e-learning among engineering students and instructors. The reported findings focus on participants’ attitudes towards and their satisfaction with technology. The article concludes by commenting on the prospects of e-leaning in Libya.
