Abstract

The study aimed at identifying the degree of commitment of the University of Petra students to the ethics of distance learning from their point of view. Also, this study aimed to identify the differences in the degree of commitment according to variables such as gender, type of college, GPA, and academic level. To accomplish the study objectives, I used a questionnaire consisting of 19 items and verified its validity and reliability. The study sample consisted of 277 students who were enrolled in the University of Petra for the summer semester of 2020/2021. The results of the study revealed that the degree of commitment of the University of Petra students to the ethics of distance learning was generally high in three areas of study: tests and assignments, the relationship of the student to the teacher and colleagues, and commitment and discipline. The results showed significant differences between the mean student responses attributed to the variable of gender in favor of females. Also, observed differences in the students’ responses were due to the variable of college type in favor of scientific colleges and to the variable of GPA in favor of the Fair rate. In addition, the results showed that there were no statistically significant differences between the mean student responses attributed to the variable of academic level.
