Two decades ago technologies as VLE or virtual learning environment were introduced to the world. They have been used in many aspects of human life and have had dramatic changes on human life, especially education. These technologies have initiated new possibilities into the field. The role of the teacher, the nature and context of learning, as well as the function and relative importance of contents of the courses have all been challenged and redefined accordingly. This paper introduces some of the most useful ICT, CMC and VLE resources in teaching English literature in a non-native context. extensive use of web 2.0 components, internet, e-encyclopedias, power point presentations, webcasting, and audio-video programs to name some examples, have been made implemented in teaching plays, novels and poetry to the students. The results indicated a great improvement in students learning, moreover the feedback was positive.
