Electronic learning is getting popular in the world and more universities are offering various courses through internet. This paper presents an empirical investigation on effectiveness of electronic courses in one of Iranian universities whose students were enrolled on electronic learning. The proposed study designs a questionnaire to measure the effects of this program in terms of teaching, administration and electronic content, and distributes it among 354 randomly selected students. Cronbach alpha has been calculated as 0.97, which is well above the minimum acceptable level. The study gathers all inputs in Likert scale in terms of linguistic variables. The study uses ANFIS to measure to analyze the data and the results indicate that electronic learning itself maintains the highest popularity among students (0.618) followed by electronic content (0.569) and administration efforts (0.563).
