Abstract

This paper reviews the literature relates to the barriers that the academic staff in the Saudi universities encounter when using e-learning. The Saudi literature agrees with the western one on a number of popular barriers such as negative attitudes toward e-learning, lack of time, lack of support, and lack of training. These barriers have been discussed in more details. It is concluded that the academic staff in the Saudi Arabian universities significantly encounter some problems that might limit or completely prevent them from using e-learning.
