Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the perspectives of pre-service teachers regarding the emergency remote teaching that took place with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The feelings, thoughts and experiences of the pre-service teachers were examined through digital stories prepared by themselves. This case study was carried out within the scope of the Multimedia Design and Production course in the spring semester of the 2019-2020 academic year. The participants consist of 35 third- and fourth-year pre-service teachers who are studying in the Faculty of Education, Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies. The data of the research are composed of digital stories prepared by the participants and their responses to an online questionnaire form consisting of open-ended questions. The data were analyzed by content analysis method. The data obtained were collected under four themes: pre-service teachers’ expectations for the distance learning process and their feelings at the beginning of the process, pre-service teachers access to the learning materials, technology and faculty members during the emergency remote teaching, pre-service teachers' self-regulation skills during the emergency remote teaching, and pre-service teachers' mood during the emergency remote teaching.
