Abstract

Background: COVID-19 has affected the normal education process all over the world. Today the classes are conducted through online platforms. Therefore a study was conducted to find out the perceptions of dental students and faculty about the online classes.

 

Methods: Online questionnaire was prepared separately for students and faculty members and was sent to different social media groups and email. The 15 point questionnaire consisted of questions about mode, time of use, satisfaction levels, and overall perceptions of online teaching/ learning apart from the basic demographic details of the participants.

 

Results: 1550 complete responses from students and 380 responses from faculties were considered. More than 90% of teachers and students are satisfied with online learning/teaching in the present scenario. Among the faculty and students, there is no statistical difference in the perception of online classes.

 

Conclusion: The need of the hour in this pandemic situation is the continuation of academic activities. Online education has been well accepted by both faculty and students of dentistry.
