Unplanned Transition to EFL Online Learning: An Analysis of Students’ Perceptions in a Vietnamese University
Keywords:online learning, students’ perceptions, COVID-19
This research intends to investigate their perspectives on the abrupt transition to online learning at Electric Power University in Vietnam. The research questions were answered using a mixed-methods technique. After 9 weeks of online-only instruction, 87 university students were sent a 25-item questionnaire utilizing the Monkey survey program. A random follow-up interview was done with ten students who consented to participate in the interview in order to acquire insight into the specific concerns. The majority of students preferred face-to-face classrooms over online learning, and the majority had no intention of studying online in the future. During the time of 'forced' online learning, however, the majority of students thought their teachers were eager to offer them support and valuable feedback. The results have significant ramifications for instructors and teachers in relation to online learning and teaching in comparable contexts.
