This descriptive research involved a survey of undergraduate and graduate students in one of the medical colleges. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the researchers adopted a convenience sampling technique to select research participants. Data were collected using an online questionnaire that had Cronbach’s alpha value of .895. Descriptive analyses were performed to analyze the data using SPSS software. The findings revealed that despite the majority of students possessing their own laptops and mobile phones, there were some who did not have their own laptops and mobile phones. On the amount of time spent by the students, students spending time on computers and mobile phones for other purposes outweigh the time they spend for academic purposes. Similarly, from many applications and approaches adopted by the teachers, the majority of the students rated zoom, followed by VLE, as a highly effective mode of online lesson delivery.
