Abstract

Purpose: The goal of this research is to investigate the factors influencing study engagement. while the COVID-19 outbreak is occurring by using online platforms to provide educational concepts.


Design/Methodology/approach: There were 412 cadets present. The questionnaire was divided into sections to find out about each cadet's unique traits, needs, proficiency with online tools, and preferences for high-quality online education.


Findings: \ Young students live in a digital environment, and they have been using online education and digital applications as a form of instruction for a long time.


Practical Implications: The academic curricula was created for in-person instruction, and because there were not enough facilities to enable unexpected virtual education, universities were not ready for a sudden change. This caused anxiety among students.


Originality/Value: The data were analyzed using SPSS version 22 (Statistical Package of Social Science). The data's constructs were compared using chi-square analysis.. This study fills a vacuum in Indian research on this topic by examining the cadets' mental health state under situations like lockdown, which was recognized as a need.
