Comparison and effectiveness of classroom and online learning in the background of COVID19: A case study on a tier ii engineering institute
Author(s): RGD Souza
Abstract: The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in engineering and technology institutes to be shut all across the world. In India about 25lakh students are out of the classroom and are attending online classes from mid-March 2020. As a result, engineering education has changed dramatically, with the sudden distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby technical subjects are delivered remotely and through digital platforms. In order to Compare and study the Effectiveness of Classroom and Online delivery of the engineering subjects in a Tier II Engineering Institute a research survey was planned. The responses received were then used to compare and study the effectiveness of delivering the syllabus. The results show that there is not much change in the way students differentiate between online and offline courses. How we interpret, record, compare and understand students responses can define whether engineering online education develops as an opportunity for the future post COVID 19.
