Effectiveness of E-learning from Teachers’ Perspectives of the Private Universities in Kurdistan Region- Iraq

  • Technology has a crucial role in different aspects of everyday life, and its importance for education is no different. Technology is swiftly changing the way students learn and teachers teach. There are reasons behind the growth of E-learning industry in higher education, both from the institutions’ and students’ perspectives. E-learning is an attractive alternative with the limited capacity of existing classrooms at academic institutions and the prohibitive cost of building new facilities. This study examines how effective the e-learning process is through the teachers' perspective at the private universities in Kurdistan. An online survey was utilized to collect data and information, involving 100 participants from the targeted universities. The study hypothesizes that teachers’ background has the least impact on the level of the barriers. This study stimulates further obstacles in implementing the E-learning process in higher education, such as the lack of student’s capacity to use ICT tools. In addition to the lack of engagement between the teachers and students during the implementation of E-learning process.
