The use of e-learning in educational institutions can ease the burdens associated with both teaching and learning processes, thereby improving the overall standard of education. Meanwhile, despite, its numerous benefits, its adoption in Wadi-Alhayat higher education institutions, Libya still remain unsatisfactory. Most educators in the institution have not seen the reason to adopt totally the service into the college educational system due to some issues. This has caused a lot of setback to efficient e-learning usage in the institution. Meanwhile, studies have identified that, educators’ personal characters is among numerous factors that can determine the use of e-learning among educators/instructors in higher learning institutions. Therefore, this study aims to assess this factor in relation to the use of e-learning among educators in Wadi-Alhayat higher education institution, Libya.

The result from Pearson product-moment correlation revealed that relationship between educator’s personal character and the use of e-learning is an extremely low, non-significant relationship with a coefficient of correlation value (r) = 0.018.
