Abstract

The study used a social sample survey to determine the impact of distance learning on University of Sharjah students in light of the "Covid-19" epidemic. The "questionnaire" tool was used to collect data. The study came to a conclusion on the quality of education and, in particular, the students' overall feelings of loneliness and isolation. Their positive attitudes about distant learning are shown in their ease of using technology for learning, independence, comfort, and developing individual skills and capability. And, in terms of a student's academic level and the extent to which the distance learning process affects them at the University of Sharjah, the students' perspective came to show that investing time in technology and attempting to access the lecture came first. Following that, due to a lack of student vision and confrontation, as in classical learning, individual variations are not taken into consideration. Last but not least, there was a lack of knowledge, a high level of individual motivation among students, and finally, the provision of basic information. The impact of virtual learning on the teacher-student interactive relationship shown that this type of education has taken place. It did, in fact, strengthen the relationship between the faculty members, followed by their perception that the information was not easily and clearly accessible in comparison to traditional education. Their fear of being unfairly judged, as well as the correlational relationships between the impact of distance learning in the context of the Corona pandemic, sample differences, and the existence of correlational relationships between gender, university level, specialization, region, number of siblings, and housing type.
