Abstract: This chapter provides a critical perspective on distance learning from the Indian higher education context based on student experiences with distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study is based on evidence from an online survey conducted by the authors of this chapter, who are also teachers within the Indian higher education system with varying levels of teaching experience and training (both on-campus and online). The arguments based on the findings from this study are limited to an extent since it captures the experiences of only those students who had access to the internet and who participated in classes delivered online during the spring 2020 semester (for details on sampling, please see “Research Method” section). We provide a brief context of the mainstream Indian higher education system before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. Then we engage with the existing literature on distance learning, especially with a focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. Thereafter, we explain our research methodology to present and analyze the data from our research.
