E-learning has emerged as a necessity to meet the challenges posed by the development of information technology and its potential for greater access to knowledge. E-learning technology is becoming more visible in schools in many parts of the world. Kuwait, like many other countries, has started to study the adoption of an E-learning system in K-12. E-learning in schools must meet certain standards that make students competent in a numberof areas. The purpose in this study was to investigate teachers’ opinions of the impact of e-learning on the public education system in Kuwait. Based on responses by 519 teachers, to a questionnaire survey consisting of 36 items, we identified the following 6 educational improvement areas: 1) basic operations and computer concepts; 2) ethical and human issues; 3) productivity tools; 4) research tools; 5) problem-solving and decision-making tools; and 6) communication tools.
