Abstract:


In this study, the opinions of senior students in the Department of Guidance and Counseling were included in a narrow framework. The reason for recruiting graduate students was to examine the positive and negative aspects of distance education from the perspective of psychological counselors and to contribute suggestions for effective distance education. A qualitative research design was chosen for the study in which the participants’ thoughts and perspectives on distance education were examined. The prediction that it is more possible to examine the participants' perspectives and thinking styles towards distance education with a qualitative approach was influential in the choice of this methodology. Data were gathered from 47 students and the main codes which were determined showed similarities with other studies on distance education. Although distance education maintains continuity of lessons by providing an opportunity for learners to watch them again, is an economical practice which enables the effective and efficient use of time and provides individuals with the opportunity to learn at their own pace, one of the disadvantages was found to be the inexperience of the lecturers.
