This paper examines the challenges faced and initiatives taken during the implementation of the e-learning content of the Malaysian Studies module to Generation Y students at its preliminary stages. The process of the implementation and the constraints faced during this teaching-learning process were among the points clarified in this study. This study spans from the initial stages of planning, implementation of the online module contents, and up to the reflections from the lecturers who have implemented the project. Through the qualitative strategy, a focus group discussion was conducted in July 2013 and data was collected from the lecturers who were involved in the development of the e-learning content of the module. The researchers noted the challenges faced by the students and the issues faced by the lecturers during the process. As a result, some initiatives have been outlined and implemented based on the input gathered from the focus group.
