What generate an effective e-learning environment to course writers may differ to a developer but the major consideration is to the prospects because they are the receiver.  An e-learning system is meaningful to learners when it is easily accessible,well-designed, learnercentred, affordable and efficient; flexible and has a facilitated learning environment. When learners display a high level of participation, involvement and tremendous output in meeting a course’sgoals and objectives, this can makee-learningmeaningful to instructors.Therefore, when learners enjoy all availablesupportservices provided in the course without any interruptions, it makes supportservices staff happyas they strive to provide easy-to-use, reliable and accessible services.This paper examines components and features that can make e-learning as competitive as face-to-face learning whereby students derive equal benefits as when undergoing face-to-face learning.
