An investigation of university faculty’s, administrators’, and students’ perceptions of eLearning in Afghanistan will be addressed in this research roundtable. The study will specifically explore the potential opportunities and challenges of eLearning in Afghanistan higher education. Since 2001, Afghan higher education has been on the verge of tremendous shift in terms of quality and access. The biggest challenges that the country’s higher education are facing today include improving the quality of the education and increasing access to higher education especially in rural areas of the country. The current challenge of higher education will not be easy to tackle because it requires enough professional faculty members, space, and contemporary teaching materials. Afghan higher education has to look for alternatives such as eLearning to pave the ground for the nearly one million students to have access to higher education.
