Abstract
Despite the potential of Learning Management System (LMS) supported asynchronous e-learning to improve asynchronous e-learning system quality by enhancing learning effectiveness and academic achievement of HEIs , several challenges are faced in the process of providing the e-learning mode of study particularly in developing countries. The study will explore five factors that influence quality of asynchronous e-learning: instructional design, learner support, contextual factors, student characteristics and instructor characteristics. The quality factors can be used to evaluate quality so as to monitor and improve the inputs, processes and outputs of asynchronous e-learning systems. The study examines existing e-learning literature and then proposes five factors that determine the quality of e-learning systems.
