Abstract—E-learning was a major study area during
COVID-19 pandemic. Practically, public and private higher
education institutions worldwide have switched from
traditional face-to-face teaching to online learning solutions in
order to deal with the spread of the coronavirus. Hence, the
purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of the
e-learning solution during COVID‐19 crisis. The research data
were gathered using a self-administered online survey from
Moroccan public university students. Through using the
structural equation modeling under the partial least squares
(PLS-SEM), the findings reveal that instructor quality has a
direct and significant influence on system use and learner
satisfaction. Likewise, user satisfaction is positively associated
with system quality. Moreover, the e-learning system success is
driven by both system use and learner satisfaction. These
results are useful for Moroccan University policymakers in
order to develop best practices to ensure a successful e-learning
