The present study aimed at examining the effect of e-learning and students ‘digital literacy towards their learning outcomes. It was designed in quasi-experimental research with post-test only control group within 2x2 factorial design. The sample of the study involved 96 vocational students obtained from random sampling technique. Two instruments were conducted in this study, namely questionnaire and test. The obtained data were analyzed descriptively and inferentially assisted by SPSS 25. The results of the study show 1) there are different learning outcomes between students who were taught using e-learning and conventional method; 2) there is an interactional effect between e-learning and students’ digital literacy; 3) there are different learning outcomes between students with high digital literacy of experimental and high control group; and 4) there are different learning outcomes between students with low digital literacy of experimental and high control group. The provision of e-learning is effective for learning process. It is suggested for the educator to introduce and give chance to integrate learning and technology to make students familiar with various technology which gives impact to their learning outcomes.
