However, with regarding to the students community, how much they use the e-learning technology, what types of e-learningmethods are being mainly used by the students, as well as the barriers for enjoying the advantages of e-technology, remain interesting topics for the educators to explore. This article, by focusing on these issues, through aninvestigation among the students within a higher education institute, presents an understanding regarding the usage of e-learning methods, and the factors hindering the efficacy of their usage among the students, as well as a primary analysis on the usage difference between undergraduate and postgraduate students.
