Keywords:Online learning, Student satisfaction, Personality development, Effectiveness of pedagogy, Class engagement
AbstractWith the current pandemic induced behaviour on education, the online learning system has become more prominent and is currently in hybrid mode. Several studies earlier have dealt with the aspect of blended learning systems. In this paper, an empirical approach is attempted to study the effect of online learning, mixed with classroom attendance by students. How this new form of learning is being viewed upon by the prime beneficiary â€“ students are being assessed on several factors like comfort, effectiveness, Pedagogy, Engagement in class, Practice sessions and personality development in a holistic manner, and its overall effect on the satisfaction of student in the context of online learning. The authors have adopted a multiple regression approach and examined the role of each of these factors in the overall satisfaction in online learning. The findings indicate Majority of the respondents falling under neutral towards all the cases. Very few respondents disagree with the aspects of online education. It is also found that there is a significant impact of Comfort, Effectiveness, Pedagogy, Engagement in class, Practical Sessions & Personality on Overall Satisfaction.
There is a significant relation between Comfort, Effectiveness, Pedagogy, Engagement in class, Practical Sessions, Personality & Overall Satisfaction in Online learning. The findings are expected to be useful for institutions of higher learning, in taking measures to reduce the limitations and enhance the benefits of learning to students.
