The Covid-19 pandemic has drastically transformed the educational landscape. Online education has become the new normal for many students worldwide. Although online learning is perceived as cost-effective, how online education impacts accounting students' academic performance remains a subject of debate, particularly in developing countries such as Indonesia. Similar research has been extensively conducted in developed countries, but conflicting results have been found in developing countries such Indonesia. This research aims to evaluate the effectiveness of online learning for accounting students taking all their courses online. A survey method is employed for data collection, using a survey design with 32 items questionnaire developed by Samara et al. (2023), with reliability values ranging from 0.8 to 0.85. This study conducted across 10 public and private universities in West Java. West Java is chosen as the survey area because a significant number of universities in Indonesia are concentrated in this region, including areas like DKI Jakarta, Bandung, and Bogor. The survey targets accounting students currently working on their final project, as all courses are taken online. The assessment of e-learning efficiency is based on students’ responses regarding engagement, ease of communication, accessibility, and students’ learning experience. The findings of this research are expected to provide profound insights into the effectiveness of e-learning in the context of accounting education at the tertiary level, particularly in developing countries. The implications of these findings can serve as a foundation for the improvement and development of more effective teaching strategies in shaping the skills of accounting students.
