Many universities and colleges nowadays have begun to offer academic degree and certificate programs via Internet at a wide range of levels and in a wide range of disciplines. In addition, several universities also offer online student support services, such as online advising and registration, e- counseling, online textbook purchase, student governments and students newspapers.


On-line learning provides benefits to both instructors and learners. However, there should be minimum requirements to make this interactivity possible. This is the reason why this study was conducted, to know the level of awareness and the level of readiness of the students to the on-line learning system.
