Abstract
Background: Online learning became a popular mode of education in the recent Corona Virus Disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. For medical field in India, online mode of learning and assessment is novel.

Aims and Objectives: This study aims at determining the attitude of students, identifying unacknowledged problems and their possible solutions associated with online learning, and to explore the future scope of online learning and assessment for medical education in India.

Materials and Methods: The study population consisted of 199 medical students who had taken continuous six months of online learning and assessment in the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic period over varzious platforms such as Google Classroom, Zoom Meet, Cisco Webex etc. A questionnaire was made on Google form and distributed through online platforms, and students’ responses with informed consent were collected and analyzed. Responses were in form of Likert scale that ranged from “Strongly agree” to “Strongly disagree.”

Results: About 41.4% of participants agreed that online learning and assessments save time and resources. About 78.3% of students agreed that technical errors make it difficult to continue online classes. About 78.3% of students agree that responsibility of learning is on students. About 77.7% of students agreed that academic integrity and honesty are vital in online assessment.

Conclusion: If online classes can be improved by solving technical errors, better infrastructure, and faculty training, it may be continued as a supplement to classroom education for lectures, but not for practicals.

Key words: Perception; Medical Students; Online Learning; Online Assessments, Corona Virus Disease-2019
