The introduction of the e-learning, both multimedia and conventional, has resulted in drastic and inevitable improvements in the learning environment for both learners and tutors. This has been facilitated by the use of internet and has attracted more organizations and among them, academic institutions for communication as well as to share crucial information, such as research works and new knowledge discovered. All these efforts created the learning environment for students favorable, as learning resources becomes abundant in addition to the books and the tutors they already have. The current economic hardships have affected Zimbabwean education system having negative repercussions to the attraction of both local and foreign professionals. The current experienced professionally qualified tutors and technicians are being drained out in search of greener pastures leaving the Universities with only senior faculty heads and a pool of junior staff. However, this is resulting in inevitable deterioration of educational standards as semi-qualified staff is dominating throughout the whole industry and thus paving way for this paper to explore the need for an expert system to create an enjoyable student learning environment that has positive impact to their learning outcome. The study done in 2010 with students at Bindura University of Science Education doing a module-Introduction to Computer Science showed that expert systems clearly plays a major role to help universities, lecturers and students in Zimbabwe where brain drain has affected the quality of teaching and learning.
