Abstract: eLearning is one of the rising modes of education fields in the Middle East. The political and social changes that are taking place in the Middle East since the beginning of the Gulf War has made eLearning an essential tool for education amid all these difficult scenarios in the region. Review of the literature showed there are pedagogical and cultural factors that impede full utilization of eLearning in the Middle East. The proposed research examines those two factors by using a quantitative research method. Students and teachers will be surveyed simultaneously to identify the pedagogical and cultural obstacles of eLearning.
