We have been experiencing a lot of challenges in education particularly on teaching and learning but several plausible remedies are made available to us, teachers. Since they are not prepared for the challenging and isolated learning environment, many students who take online courses experience dissatisfaction and disappointment. Self-directed learning (SDL), a conventional learning philosophy, is a foundation that can help students develop features of a customized system that lets them control their overall learning experiences and track their own success. The objective of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of SDL in an online environment using the following specific domains: the teaching environment, learning environment and the technology. These three domains would like to focus on how a learner could handle SDL to make it effective. The research was carried out using researcher – made questionnaire distributed to 65 learners.
