Virtual Classroom (VC) not only has the function to replace a traditional classroom but also has less expense related to transportation, building new facilities, or the maintenance or repair of existing facilities. This study proposes some factors which influence the success of E-teaching. The subjects include students who have experience of attending related e-teaching system. Data were collected on May 2010. Subjects were in age from 18-24 years old. SPSS Amos 18 is used for data analysis and it shows that government policy, school regulation, student experience are important roles in guiding a successful e-teaching activity. This study also confirms that User Experience is the most significant determinant that directly affects the effect of user interaction and knowledge exchange in e-teaching practice. When users get greater experience of IT operation skill, their feelings about E-teaching practice will be more successful. The adoption of E-teaching would be more successful when users gain greater skills at IT operation. Fulfilled E-classroom application is able to help the elite or mass stage of higher education system moving to the universal stage because per student cost of VC is quite lower. The suggestion of E-classroom implementation is also helpful for the expansion of higher education in some countries, such as Asian countries (China, Mongolia, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia) or other elite stage countries.

Majid Rashid: After reading this paper and currently using Virtual Environment could not find very usefull information from this Article.
This Article more telling abt Scholers, reserchers, Govt. Policy makers wht they doing. And wht they think.
What i was expecting from this Article is more technical information Regarding the implimentation of Virtual e-classroom system, Security Benefits which is huge, Isolation Environment, Replication of Any system.
There are Couple of Headings Like:
Policy and system design:
I dont think so content of this paragraph Appropriate. It should tell how to desing a Virtual System for E-Classroom, tools(Software, Hardware) requirement.
Then Next Heading:
User experience and acceptance:
This heading also need more specific Information as compared to provided.
1. Flaws of the Virtual System is not described there. One biggest thing is yes you can have complete interactive system but import or export of a whole file is not possible easily on user end. its possible on Back end but still not that easy. You can copy text and past from Virtual to local or Local to Virtual, But Binary code files not possible to copy out from the system which we provide for user end. Because we make it Isoloated for security Purpose.
2. Some time mouse and Keyboard start Rattling in VM's so far have experienced my self but couldnot find the solution of it.
At the End i have to say this Article is very Generalised in content.
