The present study aimed to identify the components of professional ethics in the context of e-learning and distance education and design a model of professional ethics. To achieve this goal, the exploratory mixed method was used with a focus on the qualitative-quantitative method. In the qualitative section, in order to collect data, the semi-structured exploratory interview method and the focus group were used, and then in the second stage, the descriptive-analytical method was used quantitatively and a researcher-made questionnaire was used to collect quantitative data. In order to assess the current situation of professional ethics in Alborz Higher Education Institute, the identified components were surveyed as a researcher-made questionnaire from the viewpoint of students. A one-sample t-test with a test value of 3.5 was used to analyze the questionnaire. The results showed that the factors and components of professional ethics with t visible in the table were significantly higher than the expected average.
In terms of desirability, behavioral and process components were at the desired level and only the component of ethics-oriented interaction in the e-learning environment related to educational assistants was at a relatively desirable level from the viewpoint of students. By erpresenting the initial model of professional ethics based on the literature review and interviews with e-learning experts, and qualitative and quantitative results, the conceptual model of professional ethics was obtained.
