Abstract

COVID-19, short for "Coronavirus Disease 2019," has rapidly spread across the globe, resulting in a global pandemic. The COVID-19 pandemic has had profound impact on social, economic and health worldwide including in the field of education. Educational institutions including colleges and universities have faced significant disruptions and challenges due to the pandemic. Many higher education institutions temporarily closed their campuses and this led to the disruption of traditional classroom-based learning which used face-to-face learning as its main method to deliver educational contents. With this closure, there has been a rapid shift towards remote learning or online education to ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff. Lecturers have adopted various online platforms and virtual learning tools to deliver lectures, facilitate discussions and conduct assessments. The objectives of this study are to investigate students’ preferences between two methods of learning which are online learning and face-to-face learning. It will also examine the students’ perspective relating to the advantages and disadvantages of online learning as compared to face-to-face learning. Additionally, the study also seeks to identify the students’ learning effort during online learning session. It is noted that both face-to-face learning and online learning have their own strengths and limitations. Thus, the findings of this study could help educational institutions, lecturers and related party to improve their teaching and learning method in delivering educational contents by taking into consideration various factors including students’ preferences.
