The Open University of Sri Lanka (OUSL) is the only recognized university in Sri Lanka where students are able to pursue further education by distance education techniques in keeping with the philosophy of open and distance learning. A wide range of options are available to the distance educator. They fall into four major categories as voice, video, data and print. E-learning can be considered as one technological option. It can be defined as a mode of providing learning experiences to learners, using ICT to overcome barriers of traditional learning. There are several methods in e-learning such as web-based training, instructional Radio and Video-based Learning. Open University of Sri Lanka is now involved in online learning with Moodle, one of the famous learning management systems(LMS).The main focus on this study it to identify the impact of online learning for its students.For this study random sampling method and interview method have been used. According to the findings most students prefer forums as discuss subject matters and also for their networking .Students considered uploading assignments as more convenient than posting or handover to the University. They like this method because they can contact their coordinator at any time at any place. Particularly some prefer this to contact their coordinator even for counseling. Lack of resources-Computers as well as experts in the field, infrastructure, no proper training on Moodle, and Low awareness level of e-Learning can be considered as main problems. Some students still prefer traditional face to face learning method in lecturing. Hence E-learning with traditional face to face method or known as blended method can be used to access the larger number of students in distance mode.
