The primary sources included questionnaires and interviews. 132 participants were surveyed. Two professors were interviewed. SPSS was used to analyze the data. The findings indicate that there are five unique barriers to e-learning adoption in Sudan including; poor network infrastructure, lack of bandwidth in rural areas, electricity outages, lack of electricity in rural areas, and stakeholder’s deficiency of e-skills.
