This paper aims at investigating the effect of a DE system on the computer literacy of Master of Arts students at Tehran University. The design of this study is quasi-experimental. Pre-test and post-test were used in both control and experimental groups to undertake the study. The populations of this study were students, those who participated in traditional and online education at the University of Tehran.
