Ahmed Awad Amin Mahmoud / Raba?

Abstract: Students' Attitude towards Distance Learning at Al-Quds Open University/Tulkarem Educational Region? The aim of this study is to examine the students' attitude towards open learning at Al- Quds Open University. To achieve this aim, the researcher used a 30-item questionnaire which was distributed among 92 male and female students (2% of the whole population) who were chosen randomly from four educational specializations Education, social service, administration and technology. The researcher used different statistical procedures such as means and percentages, independent paired t- test and the one way ANOVA test to analyze the necessary data for the research. Results revealed that students highly value distance learning system because it offers a good opportunity for higher education to a large number of students who want to pursue their education by overcoming the spatial, economical, and social barriers. It also provides self ? directedness and autonomous learning opportunities. In the light of these findings, the researcher recommended the consideration of lack of campus activities and rarity of instructor- student interaction for a viable distance learning system.
