The purpose of this study was to examine the issues faced by college students as a result of online learning during COVID-19. The study took a comparison approach of public and private sector college online portal usage. A sample ranging of 1000 students would provide sufficient power to detect a significant relationship among interest variables based on the sample size information. A total of 805 surveys were returned (N= 805). Four factors were used to quantify online learning's adequacy:availability of infrastructure, home environment, students’ knowledge, and skills about the internet. Cronbach alpha test quantified the dependability and inner consistency of the related elements. Confirmatory factor analysis is used to separate the factors and to quantify the study’s components. The conclusions extrapolated from the research suggested that colleges should organize orientation workshops for students and parents to overcome the challenges faced during online learning. It is also recommended that the government should provide free internet service in the country.

Key words: COVID-19, online learning, Cronbach alpha, confirmatory factor analysis
