Keywords:Online teaching, E-Learning, Perception, Motivation, COVID-19
AbstractThe pandemic has disrupted educational systems around the world, impacting the most vulnerable students. Many institutions and colleges stopped offering in-person instruction in the middle of the academic year. Google Suite (computer software) -based e-learning was introduced as an alternative teaching and assessment method. The purpose of this study was to find out the students’ perceptions towards the quality of online learning during the lockdown due to COVID-19. A sample of 364 students was selected through a simple random sampling technique. The results showed that moderate numbers of students were satisfied in terms of teachers’ methods of online learning, students’ convenience in online learning, and motivation to learn online. A little over 60% of students chose in-person instruction, whereas just about 20.35% preferred online instruction. Considering this, one effective teaching method that can increase student motivation, success, and academic performance is blended learning. The COVID-19 pandemic has given us a great opportunity in the field of education to explore the best model to encounter the next uncertainties.
