As information technology rapidly evolves, the use of electronic learning (e-learning) has growth significantly and therefore shaped a new wave of education systems. In this digital era, this type of learning has been widely offered by worldwide academic institutions to worldwide students who wish to obtain particular knowledge, skills as well as specialization without obstructed by time and distance. Whilst the use of e-learning in advanced countries has entered a fast growing stage, some developing countries including Indonesia has just entered the introduction phase. Since 2012 it has been noted that at least seven Indonesia’s leading higher institutions have offered two types of e-learning, either distance or blended learning. However, although the use of e-learning is expected to overcome knowledge disparity as well as to offer flexibility for students, many Indonesia’s institutions are failed to maintain the survival of their e-learning implementation due to some underlying factors. This paper describes the common pitfalls for the implementation of e-learning in higher institutions in Indonesia. On the basis of the pitfalls, a research framework to drive the success implementation of e-learning in the context of higher institutions is proposed. At the end, this paper presents the progress of our ongoing research according to the proposed research framework. This paper contributes to complement the current literature on strategies and ways to shape the future of Indonesia’s higher education systems.
