considers the potential role of e-learning technology in establishing learning environments favourable to
higher education. The author identifies the noticeable decline in student competence,

ability within higher education: - 1) incorporating student-centric approach within higher institutions, 2)
encouraging culture change among lecturers to create a more e-learning environment, 3) student goalsetting
approach in e-learning design 4) adopting onlinestudent portfolios for feedback, 5) implementing a
