The purpose of the study was to identify e-learning skills needs of Vocational Education students in universities in Southeastern Nigeria. To elicit the pertinent information for the study, two research questions were answered on the students’ expressed performance and perceived level of importance attached on the e-learning skills. One null hypothesis was also formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data. The questionnaire was face-validated by three experts. Data were collected from 273 respondents made up of Vocational Education students in Universities in five states in Southeastern Nigeria. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while correlated t-test statistic was used to test the null hypotheses. The study found that the expressed performance of students on the identified e-learning skills was poor and their perceived levels of importance of the skills were very high. Among others, the researchers recommended that, training should be organized for students on e-learning in the identified deficient areas to close the skills gap.
