Abstract: Like many other universities, the University of Tabuk, adopts e-learning as one of its academic priorities. For this reason, the study was concerned with investigating the faculty members' perception of the e-learning at the University of Tabuk. In addition, the study examined the relationship between the faculty members' e-learning perception and their major and experience. A perception survey was developed and e-mailed to 183 faculty members. Responded participants were 116. The study findings revealed that 62.9% of the faculty members' overall responses to e-learning perception survey were ranging from negative to 'uncertain'. There was a significant difference among faculty members' e-learning perception related to their major and experience. Novice faculty members showed more positive e-learning perception than experienced ones in e-learning readiness. Faculty members of Computer Science, Engineering, Education, and Arabic were a little bite positive than the faculty members of other majors. More training in e-learning is badly needed.
