The results of this study provided basic mechanism for improving higher education in developing countries. There are a number of commercial or free e-learning systems in the market. Majority of these e-learning systems provide lot of functions and modules. Some courses are entirely based on e-learning instead of traditional learning model. E-learning system also offers graphs and charts of student's results. This system is based on linear workflow. That means students can see new learning resources and tests only after previous was done. Students can also create their own learning plan by defining dates.
