e-learning, higher education, motivation.


Corona virus, a global phenomenon, is considered as a nightmare that has affected people’s lives. Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, interact, work, and learn. Many preventions measures come into existence. Indeed, the epidemic of the virus has led to social distancing, quarantine measures, temporary home confinement measures, travel cancellations, and schools closure. In fact, the process of education obviously aims to facilitate learning. The latter has been affected by Covid-19; it influenced the learning process of students and e-learning has become salient; therefore, it has played a vital role in the instruction of students. Thus, the aim of this paper is to investigate the implication of online learning on the motivation of students, precisely the ones belonging to higher education. It takes the students of English department at the Faculty of Letters and Human Sciences of University Mohammed First as a case study. The quantitative research design for the present study is based on an online questionnaire that was used to collect data from fifty one respondents, and eventually analyze the set of data by using SPSS, to examine their mode of motivation throughout the use of e-learning. The findings of the study showed that students favor the authentic traditional mode of learning rather than the unsatisfactory experienced virtual learning; which entails the negative degree of motivation that was, unfortunately, decreased in the e-learning process. Thereupon, e-learning should be used vigilantly and cautiously and its conduct of pedagogies should be advanced and improved more by stakeholders.
