This study aims at examining whether university students are ready to transform and adapt to the emergence of online teaching and learning, which serves as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The factors that usually influence students’ ability to change their learning habits and adapt to these changes readily have usually been proposed from theoretical foundations. In this study, a quantitative method was conducted, with around 188 participants who were requested to complete an online survey with a seven-part questionnaire. Each part of the questionnaire was considered a factor affecting an ideally effective online teaching and learning model. The authors employed the Partial Least Squares (PLS) to analyze the data collected from the survey. The results indicated that Resources Readiness and Strategy Readiness played an important role in managing anxiety and were the main factors that affected online teaching and learning readiness. The pedagogical model was drawn from students’ readiness and effectiveness during their online learning in comparison with their efforts. The results also showed that students enrolled in social and humanity courses like English language and linguistics were more resistant to online learning than those in engineering courses. The model with precise details of factors hopes to introduce universities and educational institutions when conducting their emergency online teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
