Abstract

Gaining a better understanding of how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected students' attitudes towards online education is important in order to pave the way from education disruption to education recovery. The current study aims to investigate how COVID-19 pandemic has changed University students' perceptions about online education. The study used a localised version of a questionnaire developed by the Association for Smart Learning Ecosystem and Regional Development on different aspects of distance education. Participants were 90 University students. The results emerging from the investigation demonstrate a positive overall attitude of University students about online distance education, with relatively high levels of perceived ease of use, perceived usefulness, perceived interest and digital competences in-crease and a preference towards blended modes of delivery. The findings can help education professionals to better plan and design future online courses in the post-COVID-19 landscape.
