A researcher from King Khalid University, Maha Abdullah Sulaiman Al Hadi has emphasized the need for more technical equipments in schools that implement e-learning project. Maha Abdullah clarified that that could be achieved through intensive training for teachers of those schools, and by making balance in using e-learning method, in other words, not to rely on it completely, but rather in doing the homework only. She added "In the classroom, e-Learning could be used as an aiding tool in the implementation of teaching strategies."

Recently, Al Hadi has conducted a research entitled 'impact of the use of e-learning in the teaching of the Arabic language on writing skills for intermediate school students, the first grade'. In the research, Al Hadi used the experimental method, plus a research tool; a test to measure clerical skills, as well as a random sample of intermediate school students, the first grade. The sample consisted of 42 students from Asir, which was divided into two groups. The first,  consisting of 21 students was called the Experimental group. This group experienced studying via e-learning. The second, which also consisted of 21 students was called the Controlled group. This group studied in the usual way too. The results of the study revealed no significant differences between the two groups: they both had the same skills of sentence completion, punctuation, linking sentences subtly, spelling and handwriting. The researcher attributed the results of the study to recent experience in applying e-learning method in schools that implemented the project.

Al Hadi proposed conducting researches and studies on the application of this study to a larger sample, various stages of education in all regions and provinces, in addition to conducting studies that evaluate the Arabic language Teachers' performance in the development of writing skills among students. The researcher also suggested conducting a descriptive study to figure out to what extent the teachers of the Arabic Language know well how to use e-learning method in education.
