Introduction: Physical distancing measures to safeguard against airborne virus transmission during the Covid-19 pandemic has heightened the need for online teaching and learning methods as alternatives to conventional face-to-face classrooms. While online learning has become commonplace in developed countries prior to the pandemic, local institutions of higher learning while less ubiquitous, were in fact gaining momentum towards adopting more online teaching and learningmethods. Curb measures implemented by the local authorities during the pandemic had inadvertently left educators with little choice but to adopt online learning to continue engaging their students in learning. Objective: To determine the impact, effectiveness, and level of satisfaction of online learning during the Covid-19 pandemic among university students. Methods: A quantitative cross-sectional study with convenience sampling study was conducted among 349 students in one of a public university in Malaysia. Data was gathered using an online questionnaire that was disseminated to students via Google Form. The data was analysed with SPSS version 24 using descriptive statistics, Independent T-test and One-Way Anova. Results: Majority of the respondents felt that online learning did not affect their study and learning performance. They also felt satisfied with the usage of online learning during Covid-19 pandemic. There were no significant association between gender, age, year of study, university program, living in or out campus and experience of online learning before lockdown with the satisfaction level (p>0.05). Conclusion: Online learning does not impact the students’ academic performance during the Covid19 pandemic. Students also reported that online learning is suitable, effective, and they felt satisfied with the usage of online learning. Therefore, online learning could be considered as a useful and practical tool for teaching and learning delivery during Covid-19 among undergraduate university students.
