The study aims to identify the obstacles to the use of e-learning from the perspective of secondary school students in the Directorate of Education for the First Amman Region. It also proposes solutions for those obstacles. The sample of the study consisted of 350 students who randomly selected from secondary schools in the Directorate of Education for the First Amman Region during the second semester of the academic year 2013/2014. The results showed that high school students in the Directorate of Education For the First Amman Region face many obstacles in the ﬁeld of e-learning. Those include the large number of students, the lack of equipment in the lab, the inadequacy of laboratory computers to support the applications of modern e-learning methods, the administration’s failure to monitor the learning process, the inadequacy of the facilities provided by the school to offer effective e-learning applications, lack of continuous training that is based on the utilization of modern developments to enhance e-learning, and lack of strategies that promote e-learning. The results also showed that there are no differences in the level of statistical signiﬁcance(u = 0.05) in the obstacles of e-learning faced by secondary school students whether from the industrial, the scientific, or the literary track in the Directorate of Education for the ﬁrst Amman region. Based on these results, the researcher recommends the following: establishing laboratories with appropriate spaces and providing them with a sufﬁcient number of modern devices, training students on how to use the laboratories and providing appropriate support to use e- learning to enhance students’ Abilities And their communication with teachers, and providing adequate facilities to improve e-learning Applications.
