First, we cannot be certain of this, meaning that we do not have conclusive studies indicating that most students reject e-learning. Second: Some students reject e-learning due to misuse and the teacher’s failure to direct students correctly.

There are many factors which distinguished on-campus learning from e-learning e.g. Learning and teaching of mathematics is more difficult as compared to on-campus due to involvment of softwares.

In my country, Iraq, students did not get used to electronic education, they used to have a class and teacher explaining the matter to them directly .. So one of the reasons is that students do not accept education online due to the psychological factor to accept the idea of ​​education electronically, they need time until it gets used to it

This is attributed to that the people as general hesitate to use any new tool and it will take time to be popular. So the education using e learning firstly not accepted but I think after some times it will become acceptable tool. To success the e learning it should be provided the accessories and tools such as high speed and cheap net.

The dimensions of information systems include organizations, people, and information technology.
  1. Each organization (the school, in your case) has a unique culture, or fundamental set of assumptions, values, and ways of doing things, that has been accepted by most of its members (including students). Parts of an organization’s (school) culture can always be found embedded in its information systems. Different levels and specialties in an organization create different interests and points of view. These views often conflict into organizational politics.
  2. We also need people to build and maintain information systems. We need people who can understand how to use the information in a system to achieve objectives.
  3. Information technology is one of many tools managers use to cope with change and complexity. Information technology include Computer hardware and hardware.
based on the above dimensions, for a better technology acceptance there should be a proportionate change in the above dimensions. Such that changing the technology calls for a change in the people and the organization and vice versa.
change here is not equal to dismissal

I am not sure I would agree with your initial premise. Define your student population, define student for that matter. How are you relating the "use" of smartphones with elearning, distance learning? What are you trying to accomplish - are you saying that because a group uses smartphones they should therefore engage in elearning at a greater rate? Are the activities related? While there may be value associated with the integration of social learning activities within elearning a higher use of smartphones is not the same comparison.

The reading culture is not smartphone based. This trend is just very new and most students prefer reading from the papers/books. Above all, they believe their phone is meant for some other things beside reading, and it will take a long time to compel them to buy this difficult idea.

Doing eLearning would mean they would have to take responsibility for their learning - not so easy to blame the instructor. Unless directed to a specific eLearning site, they would also have to pick which site they want to use. More responsibility.
E-learning would allow them to do their learning at their convenience. But it is not convenient when you have to schedule yourself. Going to a traditional class in a building which has specific times for you to do something is much easier. And gives the estimation of how long it should take to someone else.
They may not have a location that is properly setup to learn. Or they do not have wifi at home and using a hot spot on your phone is expensive.Being in a building with traditional classrooms isolates them from other demands from others as well.
They give up to distractions. Many times it will be their phone that distracts them. It is more enjoyable to do something which gives you immediate pleasant feedback than something which may take some time and work. This is a problem even if elearning is being implemented in a classroom.

I guess because when they use their phone is just for entertainment, which doesn't need concentration, so when they feel tired they just can put it aside but when it comes to learning this needs more concentration which they can easily get when they are present in the classroom.

I think one of the main limitations of the online learning experience is the lack of communication with classmates and teachers, which can be frustrating for some students.
