Abstract
The outbreak of the novel coronavirus has created quite a restless situation globally. Though the pandemic outbreak has invited much confusion, it has also generated many opportunities like learning to effectively use technology in every walk of life. Online learning has become inevitable in the era of COVID-19. The study examines the influence of media, technology usage and attitude towards online learning self-efficacy. Further, the study examines the relationship between online learning self-efficacy, psychological distress, and resilience in university students during the COVID-19 pandemic that brought a sudden shift from conventional teaching to online teaching in Universities in India. The study was conducted among 257 students studying in colleges and universities in India between 18 to 30 years of age. The findings showeda significant gender difference in online learning self-efficacy and media technology usage, in which male studentswere significantly higher than female students on media and technology usage and female students were significantly higher than male students on online learning self-efficacy. Multiple regression analysis was carried out to assess the relationship between online learning self-efficacy with media and technology usage and attitude towards media and technology. It was found that attitude towards media and technology positively predicted online learning self-efficacy. The findings were discussed with implications for future research, practice, and policy making.
