The aim of this paper is to investigate the determinants of implementation success of
the E-Learning in the Iraqi Ministry of Higher Education (IMoHE) and put a work plan to
make the E-Learning widely implemented in the IMoHE. The Technology-Organization-
Environment (TOE) framework and the E-Learning literature were used to analyze the
factors which may influence this implementation and adoption. A questionnaire which
consists of twenty nine questions divided into three parts: Technological factors
(Information Systems (IS) infrastructure and IS expertise), Organizational factors
(organizational compatibility and organizational benefits), and Environmental factors
(competitive pressure and educational partner readiness) were written. The
implementation success is characterized by two dimensions Internal Integration and
External Diffusion. This questionnaire data gathered from 120 faculty members in the
IMoHE were employed to test the relationships between the research models constructs
using a structural equation modeling (SEM) approach. The results reveal that IS
expertise, and Expected Benefits are key determinants of E-Learning implementation
success in terms of Internal Integration and External Diffusion.
