Authors : Benmadani Sara .


As technology continues to reshape various aspects of life, education has also witnessed a significant transformation. E-Learning has appeared as an alternative to traditional face-to-face classroom. In the last few years, a frame of education was implemented at Algerian universities. Accordingly, E-Learning has newly been adopted in many Algerian universities. This study endeavours to highlight the concept of E-Learning. It also seeks to find out the barriers and challenges facing EFL students in learning English as a foreign language with E-Learning system. This study is significant in that it attempts to explore the effects of E-learning on the EFL learning process. In order to attain these objectives, an exploratory research design is carried out. 40 students at the Department of English at Mohamed Lamine Debaghine University of Setif participated in the investigation by responding to a semi-structured questionnaire. Results obtained revealed that despite the fact that EFL students at the University of Setif have access to many technological devices, they find difficulty in coping with E-Learning framework. In that, they encounter various challenges and barriers associated with the newly implemented E-Learning practice.
