Context: In India, responses to the COVID-19 pandemic in medical education resulted in closures of medical colleges and adoption of online teaching-learning methods, which is challenging for both faculty and students. Aim and Objectives: The aim of this study is to know the perspectives of medical students on online teaching-learning method and to evaluate the efficacy of online teaching-learning process. Subjects and Methods: One hundred students of the first MBBS course were included in the study. The present study was conducted in a form of online survey using Google forms. Results: A total of 97 students participated willingly in the study, among the participants 56% were satisfied, 32% remained neutral, and 12% were dissatisfied regarding class curriculum. Student's feedback on knowledge gained through online methods was that, 59% students felt to be useful; however, 41% felt to be not enough. When finally, the student's responses on the comparison of online teaching learning method versus traditional teaching-learning methods were obtained, it was observed that majority 75% felt that traditional teaching-learning methods are better; whereas 17% felt online classes may be better and 8% felt online methods are excellent. Conclusion: Online teaching is beneficial, but students prefer traditional teaching-learning method over it. However, in view of the current situation, students by and large have accepted the online teaching-learning method with a greater goal of gaining knowledge.
