Kalaycı, İ. (2021). ‘E-Economics’ Teaching / Learning in the Covid-19 Pandemic Process: A Short SOWT Review for Turkey. Journal of Academic Opinion, 1(1): 1-6
The e-education sector, which existed at a certain level before the Covid-19 epidemic, is given more importance with the epidemic that caused the closure of schools and made online education necessary. E-economics teaching / learning activities, which are a component of e-education, have become more popular in universities in Turkey within the scope of open education and distance education models. While the most positive side of the e-economics teaching model is that it is not subject to space and time limitations thanks to the internet, the most negative side is that it becomes prone to ordinaryization and poor quality. The subject and purpose of this study is to identify the strengths (S), the opportunities (O), the weaknesses (W) and the threats (T) of this model in the light of the general characteristics of e-economics teaching model, and to put forward some suggestions with the help of this SOWT analysis. The e-economics teaching model has also developed thanks to the constantly developing knowledge / information technology, This model opens the doors of lifelong learning to everyone for a classless society, unique to the age of internet economy.
