Aim: The main objective of this study is to estimate the impacts of e-learning and teaching on the academic performance of the students in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Methodology: A Cross-sectional Data through close-ended self-administered questionnaire was collected. The sample size of the study was 300, among them there were 50 teachers, 50 parents and 100 students. Results: The reliability of the data was tested by Cronbach’s Alpha, which was found in normal range with the value of 0.937 and the values of other variables are AC=0.933, BL=0.908, TM=0.886, WE=0.900, CEL=0.632 and UBL=0.926. The Descriptive statistics of the variables are: the mean value of the AC is 19.88, BL is 21.26, TM is 10.46, WE is 11.42, CEL is 13.86 and UBL is 11.13. Furthermore, the standard deviation of AC is 12.13, BL is 11.20, TM is 5.76, WE is 5.66, CEL is 7.54 and UBL is 7.68. In addition to this, the minimum value of AC is 5, BL is 7, TM is 2, WE is 2, CEL is 4 and UBL is 2. At the same times, the maximum values of AC is 44, BL is 49, TM is 21, WE is 23, CEL is 60 and UBL is 29. Pearson’s Correlation Matrix estimates the association of the variables and its estimations are: the relationship between AC and TM is 0.879. The relationship between AC and WE is 0.89. The relationship between AC and CEL is 0.627. The relationship between AC and UBL is 0.903. Moreover, the Pearson’s Correlation Matrix represents that the relationship between BL and TM is 0.822. The relationship between BL and WE is 0.878. The relationship between BL and CEL is 0.593. And the relationship between BL and UBL is 0.899. At the same times, the relationship between TM and WE is 0.866. The relationship between TM and CEL is 0.595. The relationship between TM and UBL is 0.844. The relationship between WE and CEL is 0.539. The relationship between WE and UBL is 0.86. And the CEL and UBL is 0.625. Conclusion: The study found strong association of the blended learning, usage of website and the concept of e-learning, the usage of technology with the academic performance of the students.
