Abstract

Students` commitment to learning courses such as Medicine is reflected by high attendance which enables them to grasp both basic and clinical subjects and equips them with adequate aptitude and skills to perform best in Medicine. 1 and 2 Since the COVID-19 pandemic, many medical colleges have shifted to online teaching and learning. While online classes offer convenience, they may also have nurtured the culture of decreased student engagement and participation and equally mitigated the value of a teacher. Easy access to online lectures, animations, and power point presentations could be another reason for the lack of interest in attending lectures. Students may be feeling disconnected from the curriculum or perceiving a lack of relevance in the material being taught, which might be one of the reasons contributing to their disengagement. This disengagement can be a leading cause of decreased attendance as students may not see the value in attending every class.
