eLearning has gained widespread popularity in recent years due to its convenience and flexibility. In Jordan, the higher education institutions have embraced e-learning and have implemented various innovations in their e-learning programs, based on a national plan for embedding online learning (full and blended) in the higher education system. These innovations include the use of new technologies and tools, collaboration with industry partners, utilization of Open Educational Resources (OER), incorporation of experiential learning, and implementation of personalized and adaptive learning. These approaches have helped to enhance the quality and effectiveness of e-learning programs, and have ensured that they meet the needs and goals of students and educators. However, the development of e-learning in Jordan has also presented challenges, such as ensuring the quality and effectiveness of digital educational materials and addressing issues of equity and accessibility. The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (MoHESR) has played a key role in supporting the development and growth of e-learning in higher education institutions in Jordan. This paper provides an overview of e-learning innovation in Jordans higher education institutions, including the benefits and challenges of e- learning and the role of the MoHESR in supporting its development.
