The main purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of e-Learning on the reading and memorizing the Quran on third year elementary school students in Tehran. The sample included 60 students who are selected by non-random sampling method. 30 students are considered as control group and 30 students are considered as experimental group. To collect data, a Self-made software called “Quran Angels”, and a questionnaire in accordance with the objectives of the third grade textbook are used. Independent samples t test and t affiliates are used to compare the experimental and control groups. The findings show that the difference between the mean scores of pretest and posttest in the experimental group is more than the control group. It is concluded that using the educational software “Quran Angels” has a positive impact on the reading and memorizing the Quran on third grade elementary students.
