Abstract:


The aim of this paper is assessing the Electronic Learning (E-learning) readiness in Jordan; using the official website of the ministry of higher education and scientific research (MOHESR) in Jordan as a case study, the proposed model encompasses two factors; website assessment and two environmental factors which are IT infrastructure and culture. By reviewing the literature and evaluating the ministry’s website the researcher finds that the website is delivering sufficient information and services to students and academics, recommends that many issues must be reconsidered towards the movement to E-learning website, and suggests that much emphasis on infrastructure and culture is required in the case of Jordan as it is a developing country.
