Objectives: To assess the psychological factors in undergraduate dental students towards elearning
in clinical skills education compared to traditional teaching methods and their
relationship with performance during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Methods: In this study, survey conducted among 494undergraduate dental students of all four
sessions from different dental universities within the Pakistan. Total 494 undergraduate
dental students responded to a 28-question online survey to identify e- learning is more
convenient and practical than traditional learning and to measure it 5- point Likert Scale used.
To measure level of psychological impact, Hamilton Anxiety Scale used due to e-learning
among undergraduate dental students.
Results: The majority of undergraduate dental student’s responded e-learning is not
convenient and practical than traditional learning system. The majority of undergraduate
dental students reported very severe level of psychological impact due to e-learning and closing
of institutions during COVID-19 pandemic. Results are statistically significant and analyzed
on IBM SPSS version 23. There are 82% students responded having problem with e-learning
system and among them 58 % have very severe anxiety and 24% have severe anxiety. So the

With e-learning, anyone can access information without being restricted to knowledge of distance, time, and space.

Education is an ongoing process and an activity which we do not have the privilege of delaying or stopping. It has to go on despite any difficulty, obstacle or even crisis like COVID-19 that the whole world is experiencing at present. Hence, the study aims to evaluate the situation and assess the proposed scenarios for the next phase. Based on questionnaires targeting students and academicians at Turkish universities, and a previous study the authors published recently, the study discusses the present status, and explores the future proposed academic plans at Turkish universities. The results showed that both students (77.5%), and instructors (81.8%) fear the infection by COVID-19 which might affect their choice of the proposed educational program (72.2% and 86.6% respectively). The results also showed that students (52.4%) and instructors (62.5%) prefer to continue teaching social subjects using distance learning program while they prefer blended (36.4% and 56.3% respectively) slightly more than face to face for science subjects particularly the practical courses. The authors assume that the blended program is a way out where it offers a reasonable solution for university education especially at science departments.

E-learning platform is no longer a novelty in this era of globalization. E-learning is becoming more and more popular and can improve the existing learning system. By using the E-learning platform, students will have more options to participate in the courses that are best for them because of the E-learning's ability to accommodate large scale users. Cisco Networking Academy has been implemented in UMS since 2003. However, no preliminary study was conducted to evaluate the implementation in the aspect of user experiences. Therefore, this paper explores end-user experiences in using the platform. An online survey employing 31 participants was conducted to investigate the user experience on Cisco Networking Academy E-learning platform at Faculty of Computing and Informatics for Network Engineering program, Universiti Malaysia Sabah. A modular evaluation of key Components of User Experience (meCUE) used in the structure evaluation of the questionnaires, consists of four modules; Module 1: Product Perceptions, Module 2: User Emotions, Module 3: Consequences of Use, and Module 4: Overall Evaluation. Overall, the Cisco Networking Academy E-learning platform can be well considered. The results show that most students have a positive experience towards the platform in which 58.4% gave positive response of the excellence of the platform (answered Excellent to Very Excellent). Although the findings are in the early stages, it provides a valuable overview of the e-learning platform as one of Malaysia's most common educational platforms.
