Description This research study was designed to explore the teaching-learning approaches to distance education and measuring students’ learning perceptions. Using the multi-stage sampling technique, eight hundred and two (802) students of the Master of Arts in a distance education university were taken using the universal sampling. Data were collected through a self-developed questionnaire. The validity and reliability were properly ensured. Descriptive statistics such as mean gained score and standard deviation were applied to analyze the data. The study found that the time for solving home assignments was enough but the students were confused about the procedure to upload it on the learning management system (LMS).Online workshops were conducted by using the learning management system (LMS) but communication flaws were found in using (LMS) Aaghai portal. The students were quite satisfied with teaching-learning techniques, TV and radio programs, and the study material. It was also concluded that the students were not satisfied with the conduction of the online workshop through LMS due to unstable internet, no familiarization with LMS and the slow process of the Aaghai portal. It is recommended that the AIOU may provide proper guidelines through the conduction of training about the use of technology for assignments and workshops purposes.
