Pandemic Covid-19 have taught educators to have reserve plans especially in higher education. During the outbreak, undergraduates faced utmost difficulties in learning through online learning platforms. Students are forced to take online classes from home. Whether it is for their studies, engaging in group works, clubs and society participations, learning with professors, in access for laboratory or practical classes have halt entirely. Even though we are in the edge of transforming face-to-face learning to online learning before another virus outbreak or any similar situation happen, the debatable issues about online learning should not be ignored. The purpose of this paper is to examine the perception of undergraduates on online learning approach and challenges faced by them. Quantitative survey was used in this study. Self-designed online questionnaire has been distributed to 43 undergraduates. Findings show that 58.2% of the students preferred face-to-face learning even after the pandemic was over. 62.8% of them complaint that they were unable to concentrate on online learning when external disturbances exist. It shows the common problems that faced by students during online classes. Therefore, students prefer face-to-face learning over online learning. The limitation is that the findings can only be generalized to university students. This paper gives an overall insight for the higher education institutions, educators, Ministry of Higher Education to overcome the challenges faced by the students in distance online learning.
