Abstract

The idea of the current research revolves around knowing the strategic impact of the e-learning methods and their available systems in Iraq in light of the dire conditions of the local and global economy that Iraq and the world alike are going through, due to the Corona pandemic and the low economic imports of oil products and the quantities of its production due to multiple price fluctuations from a sharp drop in prices.
This period of research and what I left as currency exchange rates fluctuated and political differences increased in the countries of the oil producers as well as all contradictions that surfaced on the popular surface due to changes in health and climate tensions resulting in the quarantine period for health and the epidemiological and security risks resulting from the spread of Corona disease and the like, through polling the student’s opinion at the university stage in Iraq about the extent of his ability to retrieve the information in light of the real conditions that he is going through in the period of the Corona epidemic and the extent of opportunities to benefit from the information obtained through the portals and electronic learning platforms available to him from his university or college. And an updated scale has been designed consisting from a scale with a range of (1-5) degrees according to the Fifth Likert Scale, it is possible to identify the student’s ability to retrieve the information according to the circumstances of the region in which he resides. The researcher went to a random segment of students to seek their views via the Internet after having Design his research scale from several variables as follows: First: The explained variables: – These are two variables related to the components of the SWOT analysis, where the first variable explains all of its money related to challenges (psychological tensions, social tensions, political tensions). Second: revolves around opportunities (economic opportunities, curriculum opportunities, cooperation opportunities, the positive role of the professor) while the third explains points Weakness (power outages, twice the speed of the Internet, inappropriate seasonal climate conditions) and the last of strengths (voltage elasticity, cost elasticity, elasticity of time). Third: Responding variable: It is the variable of a student’s ability to retrieve information via the e-learning systems available in universities during the new Corona epidemic. It includes five sub dimensions (curriculum capabilities, colleagues capabilities, family capabilities, means capabilities, style capabilities).
