Abstract

Nowadays, e-learning systems play an important role in our life; they help instructors in the process of teaching and help the students and learners to access knowledge. e-learning is the concept that refers to the use of computerized and smart tools and designed systems in the learning process. Also, the interest in e-learning has started to increase dramatically, and researchers everywhere have become more interested in how to develop e-learning in all aspects. Therefore, the aim of this study is to present a model that includes the most important necessary variables required to provide and implement e-learning systems according to international standards for the students of Palestinian universities. This study undertook an in-depth review of literature concerning the success of e-learning implementation and focusing on the aspects of technology, infrastructure, scientific materials and services provided. The proposed model in this study will be the first building block that universities can focus on in designing, building and developing their own e-learning system and will be a cornerstone and the basis in the development of e-learning in Palestine over time.
