Background: During COVID-19, the majority of higher education institutions in Morocco adopted distance learning. In this sense, the High Institute of Nursing Professions and Health Techniques (ISPITS) used alternative teaching/learning methods to ensure continuity of studies in case of health crises.
Materials & methods: This is a quantitative cross-sectional study. A questionnaire survey was conducted among the students (n=109). The results were analyzed using statistical software Jamovi.
Results: We found that distance learning is not suitable for 67% of the students, distance learning does not allow learning more than presential learning for 75% of the participants, half of the students find this learning method difficult and 48% of the students specify a low level of satisfaction. Significant relationships were confirmed between satisfaction and level of study (p=0.01), as well as for the student’s perception of e-learning (p<0.001).

Conclusions: The results seem legitimate given unexpected adoption of this training mode without any prior preparation.
