Abstract: 
This study aims at investigating the role of e-learning in enhancing the students’ motivation towards learning. To achieve this aim, the researcher distributed a Questionnaire amongst the postgraduate students, who were enrolled in e-courses during the academic year 2013-2014. The second tool was a structured interview with the instructors who designed e-learning courses and those who didn’t use e-learning in their courses to investigate their perspectives towards the effect of using e-learning on the students’ motivation. The sample of the study consisted of (50) M.A students majoring in TEFL during the academic year 2013-2014 and (10) professors who taught in the graduate studies were interviewed by the researcher. The results of the study showed that there was an obvious effect of using e-learning on enhancing the students’ motivation and consequently their performance in all e-courses was better than that in the traditional ones. Based on these findings, the researcher recommended that the instructors should pay more attention to e-learning and provide the students and the instructors with more training in applying more technological tools.
