Abstract: E-learning is considered as essential to Moroccan universities, especially open access institutions, to help them face massification, or the increasing student demand, and quality challenges. Despite the initiatives undertaken by some universities to experiment with e-learning, various barriers still hinder its adequate use and adoption. The purpose of this paper is to test a comprehensive framework of e-learning barriers to identify the most challenging factors that hinder the success of e-learning endeavours, using the case of Hassan II University in Casablanca. The study followed a triangulation approach using a survey, interviews and archival data. A perceptual analysis was conducted including a quantitative approach based on mean scores to identify the most significant barriers to e-learning adoption, and a qualitative methodology to explain why and how the examined factors were considered as being important. The study identified the most significant barriers to e-learning adoption, offering hence a roadmap for a more effective implementation of such initiatives.
