This study was conducted to evaluate the educational activities in the virtual environment in the visual product format organizing by the Turkey Athletics Federation Board of Education. The distance education activities of the federation were carried out online by the trainers who are experts in their fields, via the Zoom Video Communications system. An interactive education in the form of the slide presentation, verbal expression, and question-answer was provided through this system. In order to make this education, which is a visual product, more useful, the satisfaction levels of the participants were determined. After the Child Protection Program held on 26 April 2020, Performance Psychology in Sports held on 7 May 2020, and Athletics in All Aspects held on May 10, the feedback was received from the participants using the distance education visual product scale. The sample mass of the study consisted of 221 male and 91 female athletics trainers, who participated in the evaluation of the data set after the education. In data collection; The Distance Education Visual Product Scale (DEVPS), the validity and reliability of which was made by the researchers, was used.
