Abstract [en]

Because of the pandemic Coronavirus and proposals from the Swedish Public Health Agency, schools in Sweden had to adjust their teaching to distance education. The purpose of this study is to study students' motivation, understand what is inspiring for students, many students lack inspiration. Personalization in education, what kind of support could we give the students. Understand personalization from the students perspective different students need different help, make the students feel like they get personalized help. Hands on, how do we apply things that are theoretical to the practical. Through semi-structured interviews, this study has analyzed how students have experienced distance education, difficulties, barriers, opportunities among others have been looked at. The teaching followed essentially the same pattern. The teachers and students followed the same schedule as the pre-transfer,  and had contact through a video call. From that point forward, the teacher had some type of show of new material, through a  live video call. At that point the student generally followed up with working on their own, where they had the chance to contact the teacher to pose questions. The results of this study showed that online education had a negative effect on the quality of teaching. The students felt a lack of motivation and a greater personal responsibility. There were also some positive aspects of online education as it could be more adaptable and suit more students. Travel time could be reduced and the time could be spent on something else. The idea of having an online education platform was a positive idea for most of the students. As working with a real company and gaining real life experience where school sometimes can lack was seen as a positive aspect.
