Background and Aim: The global epidemic of the disease caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), a severe acute respiratory syndrome that appeared in December 2019, not only as a threat to the health and lives of millions of people around the world was considered Although Covid-19 could have negative effects on educational activities, social distancing has stimulated the growth of online educational activities so that there is no disruption in education. The electronic learning system has created educational environments that are not dependent on any specific location or time and allows teachers to teach a course simultaneously or asynchronously or use a combination of these two modes. Electronic learning as an educational medium in the classroom is a new experience for the teacher and students, which can be an effective step towards stabilizing and accelerating students' learning. On the other hand, the most important characteristics of secondary school learners that teachers should pay attention to can be classified into three types: cognitive, emotional, and social. The primary period is one of the most important and sensitive periods of study, and since it is essential for teachers and educators to pay attention to the different characteristics of students' growth, and to know that electronic learning requires a series of hardware tools and its extensive use may increase the level of violence. Mental Health Mental health is an issue beyond the absence or absence of mental illness. The positive aspect of mental health, which the World Health Organization relies on, is included in health: "Health is a state of physical, mental, and social well-being, not just the absence of illness or disability." Therefore, mental health is a state of well-being in which a person recognizes his abilities and can adapt to the normal stresses of life and be useful and productive in terms of work. Since there is no social interaction (compared to the common and usual form in the real environment) in the context of electronic learning, learners must be able to maintain their level of mental health. As a result, students who have more mental health and have the necessary abilities to deal with common academic challenges can be more self-regulated and self-efficient than other students, and as a result, they are more successful. It seems that virtual education has entered a new phase in our country and more attention has been paid to virtual education. On the other hand, those involved have become more aware of the importance of distance and e-learning-based education. Therefore, it is expected that with the development of the necessary infrastructure, such as the development of the nationwide Internet network and increasing its speed, the production of interactive educational software, and the use of the experiences gained in this pandemic, we will witness the increasing prosperity of virtual education. According to the research findings, there is little information on the relationship between electronic learning and the mental health of students, so the present study was conducted to investigate the structural relationship between electronic learning and the mental health of secondary school students in Golpayegan city, and seek answers to This question will be whether there is a significant relationship between e-learning and mental health of secondary school students in Golpayegan city.
Methods: The present research is applied in terms of purpose and descriptive and correlational in terms of method, and the statistical population of this research includes all male students in the second year of high school in Golpayegan city who were studying in the academic year of 2021-2022. The number of the statistical population was equal to 850 people according to the inquiry from the Statistics Unit of the Golpayegan Education Department. According to the table of Karjesi and Morgan, 265 people were selected through a simple random sampling method. The research tools included three electronic learning questionnaires by Watkin et al. (2004) and Goldberg's mental health questionnaire (1972), both of which were standard questionnaires. Descriptive statistics were used to describe the demographic variables and SPSS software was used to check the research hypotheses.
Results: The results of the research showed that there is a relationship between electronic learning and the mental health of secondary school students in Golpayegan city.
Conclusion: In general, it can be acknowledged that in viral crisis conditions, electronic learning can be used to improve the academic performance of students, and in this way, their mental health level can be improved to stay away from the study environment due to the conditions. Viral, saved. The Department of Education is one of the most fundamental organizations in the world today, and students have a direct relationship with this organization, this shows the key and vital role of this department in their complex lives. Knowledge of electronic learning and better use of it can facilitate and predict the quality and continuity of mental health and lead to the implementation of programs in a scientific manner and avoid unwise actions. Mental health refers to having understanding and decision-making and positive psychological characteristics that facilitate the growth and development of a person and enable the achievement of goals. While students are thinking about their survival, they should take a step beyond this view and pay attention to the consequences and effects on society. E-learning is considered an important issue for education and the factor of its survival, in this, paying attention to the mental health of students and using an effective solution for it is discussed. An office-like education must pay attention to all levels of education (in-person and out-of-person) properly. According to the results of the study, it is suggested that the Department of Education must create workshops with the title of e-learning and the importance of virtual space (by explaining the new global concepts and approaches to using virtual space in education). To strengthen the level of knowledge development in students. To increase the desired psychological outcomes, sufficient and suitable training courses should be held to familiarize teachers and students with the principles and basics of mental and physical health. Human considerations such as respondents' dishonesty and the interference of others' opinions, especially classmates, could be effective in people's responses to questionnaires. Restrictions in attracting the cooperation of some people with the researcher due to the spread of Corona regarding the distribution of questionnaires and the delay in returning several questionnaires were limiting factors of the research.
