The study aimed to investigate some psychological factors such as the attitudes towards e-learning and coping strategies considering the continuing Corona pandemic on the cognitive learning outcomes of Saudi university students. The study relied on the descriptive correlative approach to verify the objectives of the study. An available sample of university students was used, with sample size was 128 male students. The fear of corona, attitude towards corona, and coping strategies scales were used, and the study prepared a cognitive learning outcomes scale. EFA and CFA techniques performed the structural validity of the scales. Then, structural equation modeling was performed to test the relationships between study variables. The results revealed positive causal pathways from the coping strategies and attitudes towards e-learning to the cognitive learning outcomes. In addition, a negative causal pathway from fear of corona to cognitive learning outcomes. The study suffers from some limitations, which conducted on males without females. The study recommends improving the learners attitudes towards e-learning and thus improving the technological self-efficacy of the academically poor, in addition to enhance the coping strategy based on problem-solving rather than focusing on those strategies based on actions.
