Abstract:

COVID-19 pandemic has affected every sphere of day-to-day life and its impact on education has been severe due to cancellation of regular classes during the lockdown enforced for restricting the spread of the virus. E-learning has come up to be the solution for continuing the education during the pandemic. Although e-learning has fantastic features it has certain limitations such as unavailability of uninterrupted internet access in the rural areas and requirement of smart phones or computer. Therefore, an online survey was conducted to understand the perceptions of under-graduate students regarding e-learning during the pandemic and to gain valuable opinions of the students to further enhance the online teaching learning process. By using a questionnaire (with a set of 26 numbers of questions) in the platform of Google form, 282 numbers of responses from under graduate students of College of Veterinary Science, Guwahati and Lakhimpur College of Veterinary Science of Assam Agricultural University were obtained. The findings of this study offer useful opinions and suggestions of under-graduate students regarding the E-learning process which will facilitate better and efficient usage of the E-learning system during the COVID-19 like pandemic.
