Teachers’ Views Regarding the Implementation of Education Programs in Distance Education through the EBA Platform During the Covid-19 Pandemic

Abstract: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the implementation of the programs in distance education through the Education Information Network (EBA) platform due to the Covid-19 pandemic according to teachers’ opinions. In the study, the case study method, one of the qualitative research methods, was used. A semi-structured questionnaire with open-ended questions was given to 107 teachers. The data obtained were examined using content analysis. According to the study results, in “EBA Internet” and “EBA Live Class,” teachers stated that not having information about activities suitable for distance education and limited interaction with students were the difficulties they have faced. The teachers stated that the contents in the EBA are suitable for the targeted learning outcomes. Still, they are qualitatively simple, insufficient, and most of them cannot be accessed. They also stated that they had difficulty carrying out assessment and evaluation in their teaching activities due to insufficient measurement content suitable for the class level in the EBA platform. The students did not want to answer the questions in distance education courses. In addition, teachers suggested that learning with games, movies, songs, visuals, experiments, and STEM activities should be added for the programs to be implemented more efficiently on the EBA platform. Furthermore, an application that makes the board more practical and useful in live lessons should be created.
