We read with interest this observational study by Dutta et al1 which investigated the satisfaction of medical and nursing students in India receiving online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic. The authors aimed to assess satisfaction and analyse problems with online learning in the medical field. Our personal experience, and Rajab et al2 support online learning as a source of both great potential and challenges for medical students. Identifying such problems is a necessary first step to addressing the current challenge of medical education. Here we discuss the aims, analysis and implications of their research.
