Today, e-learning systems and technologies become of a vital importance for the education advancement towards the 21st century learning and to have an effective teaching and learning environments. E-learning technologies aim at providing an interactive environment that is rich in applications based on computer technologies and internet. In such an environment students are enable to access the learning resources at any time and from anywhere. In addition, e-learning offers the latest learning methods using the most modern communication tools such as computers, networks and multimedia (audio, picture, graphics), search mechanisms and electronic libraries as well as Internet portals whether remotely or at classroom. Implementing e-learning system requires an efficient e-learning framework to have a successful implementation. In addition, this technology inflicts many challenges face the teacher and forcing him to keep pace with modern developments, whether educational, or technological or behavioral developments. In this work, we present a new instructional competency level that enables the instructors to be an efficient factor in the new environment
