The COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has severely affected educational institutions. Learning has become wholly dependent on digital platforms that have helped the immediate transition from face-to-face to distance education. This study focused on faculty members' perceptions and opinions regarding opportunities to use learning management systems (LMS) during the pandemic. The phenomenological qualitative approach was used, and the sample included (10) faculty members. The data was collected through the semi-structured interview tool and analyzed using objective analysis. The results showed several opportunities for learning through learning management systems considering the Corona pandemic. These can be developed in the future by continuing learning through electronic platforms and applying the integration between the electronic system and the traditional system. These opportunities were represented in four main topics: e-learning structure, social interactions, outputs, and attitudes toward e-learning, where each main topic contains a set of subtopics.
