The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has caused an unprecedented disruption in medical education and healthcare systems worldwide. Therefore, it is crucial to assess the usability of Educational Technology forms and determine their feasibility and adequacy for medical education. The search aimed to provide an overview of the situation experienced by medical education during the COVID-19 pandemic and to determine the barriers that educators face when implementing online learning programs for medical students. A cross-sectional two surveys were conducted with (200) medical students and 75 staff members from UOH in KSA. The descriptive

The study reached many results, the most important of which were the challenges of the most important needs of teachers from educational technology training and its applications to activate distance education in medical education. As well as accurate identification of the technological and academic problems and challenges faced by students and teachers of health colleges during the pandemic.
