Abstract:
Teaching across a range of institutions had been hindered by the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly in traditional agricultural colleges. As a result, internet based teaching-learning (online teaching) replaced traditional classroom instruction which is adopted as core approach for continuing education due to closure of schools, colleges, universities etc. The central aim of any higher education institution is to nurture the higher order thinking among students to attain mastery in their respective fields. Therefore present study was undertaken to know the attitude of students of State Agricultural Universities (SAUs) of Uttarakhand viz. GBPUA&T, Pantnagar and VCSG UUHF, Bharsar towards online teaching. From both SAUs two colleges were selected purposively and a total of 359 students (both UG and PG) were selected randomly for investigation. For collecting the data, a validated attitude scale comprising of 44 statements was used and questionnaire/Google forms were administered to the selected sample. Findings of study revealed that in overall majority of university students had favorable attitude towards online teaching followed by less than one third (28.69%) of students who had not favorable attitude and rest of students had shown highly favorable attitude towards online teaching i.e. 25.35 percent.
