Abstract

The objective of this study was to identify the problems of distance learning in art education in the era of digital transformation from the point of view of art students. This was a cross-sectional survey study of all students enrolled in an art education department in Saudi Arabia. A questionnaire was prepared to assess the participants agreement on 31 positive items, divided into six problem domains, including equipment and preparations; teachers; students; teaching process; student evaluation; and computer applications. A total of 87 students completed the questionnaire. More than half of the participants disagreed on most questionnaire positive items. The teaching process was the most prominent problem, followed by student evaluation and teacher domains. While the domain of computer application was the least prominent problem. The majority of students (79%) found distance learning lacked excitement, proper methods for the practical part, and accurate evaluation. There is a crucial need to plan a new teaching process and art-specific electronic learning environment for distance learning in art education by specialists in the field. In addition, it is also important to work on developing the computer skills for both teachers and students and using appropriate methods to evaluate students’ performance accurately.
