THE DEGREE TO WHICH TEACHERS OF THE NORTHERN GOVERNORATES IN PALESTINE PRACTICE DISTANCE LEARNING FROM THEIR POINT OF VIEW AND ITS OBSTACLES
The study aimed to identify the degree to which the teachers of the northern governorates in Palestine practice distance learning from their point of view and its obstacles. The two researchers used the descriptive analytical approach, and the study sample consisted of (328) teachers who work in government schools in the directorates of the northern governorates in Palestine, which numbered (18) directorates, who were selected in a stratified random manner, and the study applied to them a questionnaire whose validity and reliability were verified by appropriate statistical methods. The results of the study showed that the degree of distance learning practice was medium, as the arithmetic mean of the total degree was (2.7), and it also showed that the degree of distance learning obstacles was medium, with an arithmetic mean of the total degree (3.39). In light of these results, the study came out with several recommendations, including the necessity of conducting special courses for teachers to train them on how to design computerized programs and employ open learning resources.
