Abstract

This study examined the private secondary school students’ perception, satisfaction, and attitude towards online teaching. Some information
concerning online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in Osun state, Nigeria was provided. The descriptive survey
design was adopted for this study. The population comprised all private secondary school students in Osun state, Nigeria. A simple random
sampling was used to select 664 students from four private senior secondary schools across the state. A self-developed 21-item instrument
with a Cronbach alpha of 0.84 was used to elicit information from the participants. Data were analyzed using chi-square statistic at 0.05
level of significance. The result revealed that most private secondary school students had high perceptions of online teaching as well as a
positive attitude towards online teaching. There was a statistically significant relationship between participants’ school class (χ2 = 11.08; p
< 0.05) and satisfaction level towards online teaching, while there was no significant association between respondents’ gender (χ2 = 2.38,
p > 0.05), age (χ2 = 0.07, p > 0.05) and satisfaction levels towards online teaching. It was concluded that online teaching should be used
to teach private secondary school students in addition to brick-and-mortar teaching.
