The constraints in educational infrastructure have posed significant challenges to the advancement of Online Teaching/Leaning (OTL). These limitations have raised questions about the quality of education, which has become even more pertinent in deprived rural communities. This study seeks to examine the substantial impact of both OTL and Traditional Teaching/Learning (TTL) on attaining higher education learning objectives within the context of the pandemic. It aims to assess how these teaching/learning methods influence the quality of tertiary education, and uncover the factors that are currently driving the preference for OTL over traditional methods in the face of the pandemic's unique challenges. This study adopted a qualitative research design, applying individual interview sessions that assimilate (No. of audiences=42). The target audience includes Lecturers, Tutors, and Academicians. Data is transcribed verbatim and analysed thematically. OTL enhances the technical skills of lecturers and students, in a different dimension of expansive teaching and learning skills. Thus, enabling adequate flexibility in the learning experience. However, the adjustment on OTL reveals that most educators and students are not fully equipped with the technology, especially in the rural district. It deduced that factors including ICT infrastructure, resource development and technical efficiency positive influence learning outcome while inadequate learning infrastructure negative impact learning outcome. In the future, the adaptation of OTL will significantly increase, therefore, ensuring the development of adequacy and expansion of ICT infrastructure in all educational institutions developing economy like Malaysia is essential to enhance higher education learning outcome.
