E-Learning environments require policies balancing different expectations of participants and considering how the users perceive ethics during online learning. As in the case of face-to-face classes; learners must show respect and tolerance among each other, and conduct civil relations and interaction based on pre-determined rules. Starting with a literature review, the purpose of this study is to analyze the opinions of the instructors and 3rd-4th year students of a distance education program about ethical conduct and interaction. The research methodology is case-oriented. Learner diversity, behavioral and legal regulations in the online environment are the parameters chosen for surveying the instructors and learners. Following the analysis of results, the opinions of the students and those of the instructors are explained and discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 footnote.)
