The purpose of the research was to investigate the college students’ opinions about distance education courses. The distance education questionnaire (DEQ) was developed for evaluating the perceptions of the students. The DEQ was conducted on 66 college students enrolled in the compulsory courses. The DEQ consisted of 18 items and two factors covering the technical and educational factors in the light of statistical analyses. When the results of the research were generally evaluated, it could be said that the majority of the students were not pleased with the distance education courses from the point of the technical (connection, accessibility, etc.) and educational (interaction, communication, etc.) factors. Some implications were presented regarding the results.
