To understand the benefits of online education and the challenges faced by students while accessing online education. Methods: A survey was conducted among the students of two universities of Guwahati (public and private) from India in the month of August 2020. A sample size of 100 students was chosen with the help of random sampling method. A questionnaire consisting of both structured and unstructured questions was prepared to interview the students.
