    Web-based learning has made remarkable development in the twenty-first century. Higher education has grown as a result of the rising utilization of e among educational institutions, especially during pandemic. E-learning allows for the dissemination of content in a variety of formats, including videos, PowerPoint presentations, text documents, and PDFs. Students can attend online workshops and communicate with educators via chat and discussion boards. Concerns regarding the effects of quality assurance-driven methodologies on the organisation and effectiveness of these activities have sparked the growth of online learning in higher education. Several aspects have been identified through the E-learning approach to answer the research question regarding the effectiveness and potency of the E-learning to higher education. Priorly, the authors and researchers discovered that previous studies defined and investigated effectiveness of E-learning in multiple ways. However, the aspects regarding the compulsory need of E-learning and beneficial university policies were still deficient in previous studies. Therefore, this study aims to integrate the perception of Malaysian undergraduates about the effectiveness of their E-learning and development initiatives which consist of independent variables such as academic performance, university policies, technical challenges, self-motivation and student engagement. Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) is applied because of its suitability in depicting the researcher's expectation from the study. This study approached a qualitative methodology which presents the perception of undergraduates engaging in E-learning. The sample size is 15 undergraduates from 15 various Malaysian private and government universities to learn their experience through a semi-structured interview.
