Introduction: Despite the fact that virtual education has been launched for a short time in medical sciences universities, especially Shahid Sadoughi University of Yazd, it is on initial steps. There is still no information available on the possible effects of this course so that we cannot identify the potential obstacles or problems or use its benefits in efficient way. In the present study, the researchers sought to explain the experiences and perspectives of teachers and students by using qualitative approach.
Methods: This study was conducted using a qualitative approach and semi-structured interview. The target population for the interview was teachers and students who had experienced such courses at Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences in 2019.
Result: In examining weaknesses in virtual education, four main categories include facilities, equipment, classroom control, inadequate teacher preparation, and student and emotional and cultural issues and eleven subcategories were extracted.
Conclusion: With respect to some obstacles in current education and due to the ever-increasing advances in technology, the use of virtual education methods is needed. If the weaknesses in the implementation of this approach, including upgrading of training and skills levels, technical infrastructure and equipment and cultural context, are fulfilled, it would be more successful.
