The purpose of the current study is to investigate the distance education given via the Education Information
Network platform, TRT EBA-TV and EBA live lesson during the Covid-19 pandemic on the basis of
parents’ opinions. The current study employing the survey model was conducted with the participation
of 709 parents. The research data were collected by an online questionnaire prepared by the researchers.
Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data. As a result of the study, it was determined that during the
distance education process, parents ensured that their children followed the lessons and motivated them, and
students were eager to participate in the lessons. It was determined that student motivation was negatively
affected for reasons such as connection problems and being closed at home during the pandemic. Parents
stated that their awareness of their children’s education increased and they better understood the value of the
teacher and school. It was revealed that there were technical problems in the process but support was received
for the problems encountered. Though the parents think that face-to-face education cannot be replaced by
distance education, they are of the opinion that distance education was good during the pandemic so that
their children did not get alienated from the school.
