Abstract

The aim of the research is to investigate the web pedagogical content knowledge and attitudes towards distance education of students enrolled in the Faculty of Sports Sciences. A total of 355 randomly selected students from Erciyes University's Faculty of Sports Sciences participated in the study. The research utilized the Distance Education Attitude Scale, Web Pedagogical Content Knowledge Scale, and a personal information form prepared by the researcher. Independent t-test statistics were used to compare the scores obtained from the scales in terms of gender, internet access status, computer availability, previous experience with distance education, and taking courses in information technologies. One-way analysis of variance (LSD) test statistics were used for comparisons based on class, overall weighted grade point average, place of residence, and the perception of the university's distance education facilities. As a result, no statistically significant differences were found based on the gender variable, while significant differences were identified with respect to class, overall weighted grade point average, place of residence, internet access status, computer availability, previous experience with distance education, and the perception of the university's distance education facilities. Furthermore, when examining the results of correlation and regression, a significant negative relationship was observed between web pedagogical content knowledge and the limitations of distance education, explaining 14.1% of the total variance. Students with an adequate level of web content knowledge tend to have more positive attitudes toward distance education. With their sufficient web content knowledge, students can be more effective in focusing on online courses, which can potentially contribute to their academic success.
