Survey data were collected from some of Egyptian novice researcher and supervisor by an online questionnaire. This questionnaire includes seven main points, which are related to: 1) computer and internet background; 2)e-learning background and skills; 3)academic research skills; 4)motivation towards e-learning in academic research activities; 5)the role of researchers and supervisors online; 6)web-based functions & 7) tools which needed. The findings showed that subjects of web 2.0 held positive views towards web based learning, research’s activities and tasks via internet and web 2.0. Moreover, researchers and supervisors need more training courses for web 2.0 technology to enhance their skills for communication, exchange knowledge and experiences, furthermore to enhance research quality, reliability and authority. Training coerces for using new web 2.0 technologies and applies this in research’s activities is the most important issue to them.
