The global impact of E-learning is felt by many nations including Malaysia. Hence, ELearning has been included as one of its primary activities in the country’s national Information Communications Technology (ICT) agenda. In planning for the future, it was imperative that the Malaysian government knew the level of readiness in the country, in particular among policy-makers, providers, enablers and receivers. It is important as Elearning has been viewed as a way to further the goals of its national education agenda. A nation-wide study to determine the state of E-learning readiness in the country was conducted in 2004. This paper reports the findings of the study jointly conducted by the Ministry of Energy, Water and Communication and the Open University Malaysia in particular among 977 enablers of E-Learning. The e-readiness as perceived by the respondents was examined from several dimensions: learner readiness, management readiness, personnel readiness, content readiness, technical readiness, environmental readiness, cultural readiness and financial readiness. The findings of the study and how it has impacted on some of the government’s decision for further development of higher education is included in the paper. (Author's abstract)
