Abstract
The study aimed to investigate the students’ attitudes of basic and secondary schools in Jordan towards distance learning, the challenges they faced, and their suggestions to overcome them from their point of view. The study population included all Jordanian male and female students from all regions and for the various educational stages. The sample size of the study was (746) male and female students. The data was collected using a questionnaire that the researchers constructed and ensured its validity and reliability. The snowball method was used to spread out the questionnaire link. Appropriate statistical analyzes were performed to answer study questions such as means, standard deviations, frequencies, and percentages. The study concluded that the average attitudes of Jordanian students towards distance learning came within the intermediate category with mean (3.95) and (60%) percentage, while the average of the challenges were within the weak category, which means there are many difficulties faced, with mean (2.14) and (36%) percentage. The study also indicated that there are many challenges for distance learning in Jordanian schools represented in the availability and speed of Internet services, and content design according to distance learning, as well as the need to take into account the diversity of students and the method of delivering the material in addition to the importance of training both teachers and students on the mechanisms of using learning platforms. This study presented a set of recommendations drawn from the proposed solutions from the students themselves, including holding training programs for all members of the educational system, including teachers, and students on the mechanisms for employing distance learning platforms effectively, redesigning the content based on distance learning models and theories, and building assessment methods for students considering the alignment of learning outcomes, teaching methods, and assessment, setting and distribute a schedule for distance learning classes taking into account several variables, and providing Internet services with free and sufficient packages for students.
