Abstract

With its design, implementation, and evaluation processes, online and remote teaching is crucial in learning environments, from primary schools to higher education institutions. The current study examines the sports science students' technology acceptance and sense of community levels in remote teaching by various variables. The study group determined by a simple random sampling method comprised 486 students (288 males and 198 females) studying sports sciences. Students' technology acceptance and sense of community levels were measured with the Online Learning Systems Acceptance Scale and the Sense of Community Scale. The study has determined significant differences between the students according to the variables of gender, department, personal computer ownership, internet access, and computer usage time. As a result, there can be said to be a positive relationship between students' technology acceptance and their sense of community in remote teaching.
