Covid 19 Process, Online Education, Psychological Effects


The Covid-19 process has deeply affected people psychologically as well as in many different ways. This pandemic, which spread from China to the whole world, has caused increasingly important psychological problems over time. This pandemic, which caused great anxiety, fear and panic on the masses of the people, also had an impact on students. Online education, which emerged as a result of this process, also caused psychological problems. In order to determine how effective these were in the sample we discussed, a Likert scale questionnaire was applied. While the results obtained are generally in harmony with the problems mentioned in the literature, some contradictory results have also emerged.
