Undoubtedly, Covid 19 has left the world with devastating and lasting effects in all aspects of life. Overnight, the education sector had to adjust from a traditional face-to-face mode of instruction to a remote, online way of teaching and learning. This rapid transition affected both faculty staff and students. The purpose of this investigation was to explore the experiences of a group of Faculty of Education students at the University of Johannesburg, as they engaged in online learning. Using a questionnaire that was designed using Google forms, over 200 students were asked to compare their online experience of learning to the pre Covid-19 traditional way of face-to-face learning. Students’ responses were recorded on a Likert scale and thereafter a statistical analysis was conducted. An important finding of this study revealed that a majority of the students’ who participated in the study preferred face-to-face instruction. This has important implications for the way in which we continue to engage with students especially in times of world crises such as a pandemic.
