He stated that the goal of this is to determine the strategic direction and changes that need to be made to capabilities, educational processes, and systems in order to get to where they want to be in the future, to determine what problems e-learning in the ministry is facing, and to create an executive plan that includes initiatives as well as a plan for communication and change management.

Daoud went into great length on the five components of the strategy. The strategic capacities axis includes the e-learning strategy, the regulatory environment, governance, and performance management. This axis is also responsible for the performance management axis. The model's second axis is made up of needs, which include labour, skills, a digital environment, and digital content. The provision of educational services, which encompasses e-learning, programme design, electronic curriculums, educational technology, and electronic assessment, as well as teaching techniques and educational assets, is the third axis.

"Educational analytics," "digital education culture," "quality assurance methods," and "cooperation and partnerships" are all part of the fourth axis, "operational capabilities." The fifth axis focuses on educational outcomes, which include both educational quality and student experience. This is done to connect e-learning with educational excellence.
