Survey method was used to carry out the study. The sample of the study consisted of the students attending Department of Physical Education and Sports at Educational Faculty and Sports Management Department of Physical Education and Sports High School in Sakarya University. In order to gather data, a questionnaire was developed by the researcher and it was applied to 330 students. Several statistical techniques such as frequency, percentage, t-test and ANOVA were used to analyze the data depending on the qualities of the variables. The results of the study indicated that the students think that by the implementation of distance education, global education and equality of opportunity would be succeeded. They also think they should have general skills about computer hardware, software and internet usage in order to take the advantage of distance education. According to the students, providing distance education in practical lessons of the physical education field is almost impossible, because the compensation of the failures in physical movements on time is not possible by distance education.
