Search engines have enough benefits in many fields such as business, trade, health, tourism and so on. In the e-learning systems search engines can be applied to the regular teaching and education, higher education, initial and continuing training. Given the issues and challenges of e-learning search engine, students, teachers, administration, and other participants may finding themselves in a position in which they can further develop this type of search. This paper presents the opportunities of search engines; however, the attention will be on issues and challenges related to e-learning search engine and their characteristics that we have deducted following an interesting selection method of papers, an analysis and a precise comparison between the benefits and challenges of search engine-based e-learning with their difficulties. Thus, we proposed several suggestions and eventually a policy to be taken into consideration by educational institutions to make these engines more efficient. This paper will lead an important overview of the progress of search engine-based e-learning for the educational institutions.
