Özet

This study centers on the distance education applications that have played a leading role in implementing educational activities conducted by higher education institutions in Turkey and around the world during the COVID-19 global pandemic. In this context, the purpose of this study is to examine educational experiences during the 2020 Spring Semester at Istanbul University, which has been regarded as the role model by many other Turkish universities for complying with decisions made by the Council of Higher Education in Turkey (CHE) in parallel with the rapid spread of the global pandemic. In this regard, the distance education processes coordinated by Istanbul University's Faculty of Open and Distance Education will be scrutinized in all aspects using the outcomes from questionnaires and other certain statistics. The study aims to help present an innovative perspective for the 2020-2021 academic year in light of all the circumstances and developments encountered during the COVID process.
