The main purpose of our work is to define the  components of the educational system which influences the successful adoption of e-learning in the field of education. We also present the factors of the readiness of e-learning mentioned in the literature available and classifies them into the 3 major categories that constitute the components of every organization and consequently that of education. Finally, we present an implementation model of e-learning through the use of virtual private networks, which lends an added value to the realization of e-learning.
