Abstract
The aim of this study is to study and analyze the metaphorical perceptions of students and teachers about the concept of distance education during the pandemic. The survey was conducted in the second half of the 2019-2020 academic year with the participation of students and teachers from two private school operating in Baku. In the study, which involved 36 teachers and 74 students, the data were obtained through Google Form. When the data were analyzed, 45 responses were not included in the evaluation process because they did not cover the purpose of the study. The study found that teachers created 35 metaphors. These metaphors were classified into four different categories. Students also created 59 metaphors, which were grouped into six different categories. When the study is evaluated as a whole, it can be said that participants sometimes see the concept of distance education as a means of knowledge, need and communication and link it to technology, and sometimes as a means of entertainment. At the same time, the results show that the concept of distance education is a symbol of despair for both teachers and students.

Keywords: Pandemic, distance education, metaphor, students, teacher.
