Your Corolla is not getting fire to the coils, it has jumped time (but that is very unlikely because it has a timing chain). It has Coil-On-Plug, no distributor, so it could be the cam position sensor, the crankshaft position sensor (more likely than cam sensor) or you can try checking these fuses that I drew a red arrow to. If either one is blown it will not have spark. Click to size up.

I understand that since it won't start this is a problem to do, but it needs an OBDII scan. If you can get a scanner somehow the engine does not have to be running to fetch the stored DTC trouble codes, just key on.
