AT THE HEART OF THE UNIVERSITY LIFE OF BEJAIA STUDENTS FACING COVID 19
The COVID-19 epidemic has put a strain on our university structures. She made each of us think about how we viewed our social responsibility in such a difficult situation for students. On March 12, 2020, the President of the Republic Abdelmadjid Taboun announced the closure of universities. It quickly became clear that the classes would not resume face-to-face before next fall, which was officially confirmed on April 2, 2020, asking them to provide the courses online to ensure pedagogical continuity using all available means, in particularly the internet and digital communication tools. The spread of the coronavirus in Algeria has therefore upset not only study programs, but also student vacations. The questions we ask in relation to this situation are to know, what is the current situation of distance education in Algeria? how do these students appropriate these technologies in an education and training context? Has it changed the practices of teachers and students? Are they satisfied with this change? Does it take into account the new needs of students? The main objective of this research is to assess the state of play of teaching through what the students of the University of Bejaia, SHS faculty say, testimony relating to emotions and reflections. and the choices made in this context, believe that Covid-19 is a virus like no other and that this threat should be taken seriously.
