E-Learning in higher education has changed the way of how teaching and learning are conducted, and this has also created new learning opportunities for both on and off campus education. To implement e-learning in higher education institutions successfully, many factors need to be examined. The scope of the subject of e-learning discussed in this paper is limited to internet-based learning, which includes networked learning, distance learning, and online learning. The main purpose of this paper is to review past research in the domain of e-learning in order to identify the Critical Success Factors (CSF) that can affect the successful implementation of e-learning in higher education. This paper will summarize and present eight important CSFs commonly found which are educational technology, computing experience, attitude, social influence, course development, language, teaching and learning styles and demography of the students.
