Abstract

Online education is increasingly becoming common in higher education for supporting traditional education as well as emerging as an opportunity for delivering entire education online. In Online education, multimedia materials are used to support learning and the ability to adapt the course content to meet a wider range of learner interests and abilities. This research investigates the satisfaction and performance of the students in TLE and VLE and also finds differences in gender based students’ satisfaction and performance. Further, the preferences of the students in selecting their Learning Environment are analysed. Data have been collected from four educational institutions with a sample of size 200 duly taken for consideration. The findings portray that maximum students are satisfied with their learning environment and performing well in their respective environment. However, most male students especially of TLE want to switch over from TLE to VLE due to certain reasons. Management or higher authorities in TE may try a launch an optional parallel VE to attract more students and to give an
alternate option for their traditional student to perform better.
