Abstract :

 “We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run”; Advances in digital technology are opening up new ways for learners, instructors and institutions and providing  an expanding array of opportunities. We are going to explore this changing educational environment and some of  the challenges and innovative solutions being developed to enhance the learning experience and use of modern marvels to use the maximum number of resources that are available in Minimal costs. With advances in technology way of Learning has improved drastically with e-Learning, and the benefits are priceless. The features  and functionality of LMS platforms in the past few years have opened up a new realm of possibility in redesigning  and converting instructor-led courses. The interface to the e- Learning experience is now a personalized portal, where the learner can interact with the learning environment – including peers, subject matter experts,  experienced veterans in his field and even the course designer. Innovative solutions are yet to be developed to help  the LMS platform, Cloud computing is one of them, with the use of Cloud computing Technology the dream of OER can be accomplished. Universities, Organizations worldwide can contribute to the Open educational  resource concept to make the Dream of e- Learning to become a Virtual reality. We are beginning to have a better  world of each and all getting the world class education at their doorsteps. Informal training and virtual  communities to take its shape in near Future.
The paper concludes with some discussions on Future of e- Learning for Next generation with concepts like cloud  computing , Distributed computing and OER(Open Educational resources) contributing their share in improving  learning Experience and combination of learning services and technology to provide high value integrated  learning that are beginning to see glimpse into the future of e- Learning and Distance learning in Saudi Arabia.
