Abstract

Corona pandemic (COVID-19) opened up new room for academic discussion in the pedagogic perspectives. It was so abrupt that many institutions were even not aware of the minor or major effect of the disease worldwide. The result was a complete standstill for a couple of days. On the other hand, institutions who have been utilizing blended learning techniques for regular education or distance learning mode gradually shifted to complete virtual classrooms. King Abdulaziz university (KAU), being the most high-tech institution in the entire Middle East/Gulf easily coped with the saddest time for education in the recent history. This research is a case study of a government university in Saudi Arabia (King Abdulaziz university, Jeddah). The university administered each of its faculty in the same way wthout any exception, however policies at the department level(s) were formulated locally. The data and observations used in the study were based on the teaching-learning practices occuring at the faculty of applied studies of KAU. It was found the e-learning/distance learning is very important s a tool of education, however, there are many challenges on the way to successful implementations of educational principles in order to attain pre-determined aims and objectives.It was concluded that distance learning is the only way we can continue education in the time of COVID-19 that has disrupted global education scenario. But, proper training for human resource and institutional preparedness is inevitable. It is recommended that an extended empirical and in -depth study be carried out for better inputs and interventions.
