Abstract

This research aims to examine parents' experience in distance education during the epidemic process. The research is designed as a case study from qualitative research patterns. A semi-structured interview technique as a data collection tool has been used for the study. The data obtained have been analyzed by descriptive and content analysis methods. Typical case sampling method has been used in the study. The study group consist of 48 parents of three different primary schools. According to the results of the research, parents carried out educational activities such as preparing, supporting students, monitoring and conducting activities during the epidemic process. Parents have carried out the educational activities in the epidemic process by providing and participating in the environment for students and contributing to them. Parents evaluate educational activities in the epidemic process in three different ways, which are satisfactory, inadequate and limited. Parents have encountered problems with infrastructure, participation, planning and EIN platform in distance education activities during the epidemic process. It is seen that the proposals for distance education activities in the epidemic process are related to the infrastructure of the EIN platform, preparation for the process, planning the process, the implementation of the content and activities used in education.
