Abstract:

This study aims to find out the obstacles facing the application of distance learning during the Corona pandemic from the viewpoint of students of the University of Hail in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where the researcher used the descriptive and analytical approach in order to achieve the objectives of the study by applying a special questionnaire to a sample of (99) students of the University of Hail in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The results of the study show that there are real obstacles facing learners during the Corona pandemic from the point of view of students of the University of Hail in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as the estimates of the study sample individuals are high about the obstacles. The researcher believes that distance learning requires competencies of remote communication and computer skills, on which the students have not been trained, which created difficulties in understanding messages and instructions from the first attempt, and some students are not trained to deal with computers and smart phones. The results also show that there are no differences to the variable of specialization and the variable of the academic year.

The study has several recommendations, the most important of which are: investing in positive approach for students towards remote learning, devloping plans and programs to benefit from these approaches, giving training courses in the field of distance education for both students and faculty members, emphasizing the need for the university to pay attention to the introduction of e-learning method in university education to spread electronic culture among students to achieve maximum interaction with this type of education, and providing an appropriate educational structure for the application of e-learning at the university and removing all human, material and technical obstacles that prevent its spread in the educational system in various stages and fields.

Keywords : Distance Learning, Corona Pandemic, University of Hail, Saudi Arabia.
