Students' Perception of Online Teaching and Face to Face Teaching

Nikolina Pleša Puljić, Damir Ribić


After more than a year of online education in Croatia,
which was caused by COVID-19, it is necessary to
determine the effectiveness of online teaching.
Therefore, the goal of the study was to determine the
difference of the students' perception of quality between
online and face-to-face teaching. The empirical study
reveals which form of teaching is perceived to be of
higher quality when taken as a whole by students,
and what their perception is regarding the individual
segments (lectures, seminars, mid-term exams, exercises,
written/oral exams) of both types of teaching. The research
was carried out with a questionnaire (N = 172).
To process the results of the research, statistical methods
of descriptive statistics, the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test,
Pearson correlation coefficient, and the t-test were used.
The findings show that there is a statistically significant
difference between online and F2F teaching. For more
generalised data, it is necessary to involve other
higher education institutions. The research makes
recommendations for improving the education process in
online teaching during the COVID-19 crisis or other
similar crises.
