The electronic storage and retrieval of information through internet are increasingly used by Omanis. SQU adopted E-learning technique with face-to-face (f2f) instructions, which resulted in increase in number of online running courses. The applications of E-learning in teaching and learning would develop with progressive implementation, improvement of utilization and quality training.
