The study explains in depth how the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education rescues and successfully completes the academic year 2019-2020 in very difficult and complicated circumstances. 101 Iraqi higher education institutions, with nearly 50,000 academics and more than 811,000 students.All started running, teaching, and learning unexpectedly. In less than a week, the ministry and its executives and special ministerial ICT workers will never stop returning life to the ministry of higher education institutions and raising the address of our universities, and we will return our universities and learning institutions to operate from our homes and have never stopped learning.Universities may not have true and strong infrastructure in Iraq, but we work and fully invest in what we have. After meeting the criteria for academic year expectations and reviewing what has been accomplished, a decision was made to complete it via e-exams of student accomplishments. The condition of the health society led the ministry to this decision because it was difficult to return the universities to its ordinary works to do the exams. Unique e-exams have been conceived and will begin to be carried out with postgraduate students from 14
June 2020, following the training of all 101 institutional review committees on e-exams and their procedures and mechanisms. The results obtained show us very clearly that the Ministry of Higher Education is saving the 2019-2020 academic year with a high degree of standards.For the next year 2020-2021, the ministry agreed to benefit from what has been accomplished and prepared a roadmap to improve learning productivity to implement blended learning with micro face-to-face learning. With the introduction of e-learning and lifelong learning, Iraqi society has taken a very large move towards information society.
