Abstract

e-Learning is important in developing countries in order to chart new directions in education, especially in Iraq's higher education sector. It has been started and implemented for educational associations. Most of the world has embraced the concept of open education via. the internet or by enabling students to access information and knowledge resources from anywhere and anytime. e-Learning offers many advantages to institutions which can use this system to grow the level of education for different kinds of students including normal students and those with disabilities. However, the e-Learning system faces many challenges in developing countries such as Iraq because of the lack of understanding and weaknesses in experience and skills among the students as well as among many institutions. Also, there is a lack of customization to facilitate the development of ICT. e-Learning system can be useful for students if the critical success factors associated with the utilization of ICT e-Learning systems are determined.
