Learning in the 21st century is characterized by technologies much-integrated with the learning processes. This study investigates the effectiveness of guided inquiry learning assisted by e-learning at physics problem-solving skills. This study was an experimental study with one group pretest-posttest design. The research was conducted in one class X mathematics and science at the Public Senior High School Number 1, Sungai Penuh city, Jambi Province, with 30 students. Data was collected by essay tests at the beginning and the end of the learning. Data were analyzed by a paired sample t-test to determine the effect size. The results showed that guided inquiry learning assisted by e-learning contributed to large effectiveness in improving problem-solving skills of students in physics class. The contribution of this study is giving point of view of using guided inquiry with e-learning in physics class.
