Generally it is not easy for an instructor to prepare and deliver electronic courses via e-learning. Therefore it is necessary to work and develop an easy method to deliver e-learning courses. In this context rapid e-learning can be used to develop e-learning courses in a more quick and easy course development. Desktop virtualization works through a centralized computing process environment to offer computing services. In order to implement rapid e-learning, a desktop virtual environment was set up. Rapid e-learning building process, virtual desktop building process were explained. Rapid e-learning was used by teachers and students. Finally the overall hybrid system cost was calculated and reported. In implementation rapid e-learning and desktop virtualization were combined. It was seen that the hybrid method was acceptable by teachers and students and fit the requirements. The cost reduction was %41 comparing with traditional desktop computing and e-learning system.
