Determination of Students’ Transition from Face-to-Face Learning to Online Learning at Higher Education: A Case Study in Trinidad and Tobago

This action research focuses on the transition of undergraduate students from face-to-face learning to online learning at a Trinidad and Tobago higher education institution. According to a survey of the current literature in the local context, there is a scarcity of information about these students’ experiences. As a result, one of the main goals of this paper is to contribute to the lack of knowledge and to spotlight the voices of these kids. It is critical that policymakers pay more attention to and understand the perspectives of these students, particularly when developing policies related to online learning. As a result, a case study was done to learn more about the students’ transition experiences. This study included fifteen undergraduates. We used semi-structured surveys and informal structured interviews. The data was evaluated under three primary thematic headings: online learning (ONL) is a feasible instructional choice, face to face learning (F2F) is required for Mathematics, and face to face learning (F2F) is required for human connection. On the utilisation of greater ONL education, suggestions were made.
