Abstract

The study aims to identify the extent of using online learning in developing students' skills in light of the knowledge-based economy requirements from the perspective of Islamic education teachers and post-basic education students in Al Batinah South Governorate. The study sample consisted of 80  male and female Islamic education teachers, and 400 male and female post-basic education students. In order to achieve the study objectives, a survey was applied on a sample of 80 male and female Islamic education teachers. A group of arbitrators verified the validity of the content. The stability factor reached (0, 89). In addition, a survey was conducted on a sample of 400 male and female post-basic education students, and the stability factor was 0.84. The study results revealed that the degree of the impact of using online learning in developing students' skills in light of the knowledge-based economy requirements came largely on all of the survey’s categories and the overall score from the perspective of Islamic education teachers and post-basic education students. The categories of information technology and communication skills and thinking skills were in the first and second ranks respectively from the perspective of the study sample. The study results also showed that there were no statistically significant differences in the responses of Islamic education teachers in all of the survey’s categories and the overall score of the gender variable.  There were also no statistically significant differences in the responses of students in all of the survey’s categories and the overall score of the classroom variable. On the other hand, the results revealed that there were statistically significant differences in the gender variable in favor of females. The results were discussed in light of the theoretical framework, and the results of previous studies. The study concluded with a set of recommendations and proposal.
