The World Health Organization (WHO) declared Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) outbreak as a pandemic on 11th March 2020 and reiterated the call for countries to take immediate actions and scale up the response to treat, detect and reduce spread to save lives of the people.  (https://www.who.int, n.d.) Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in India, almost all streams are experiencing significant changes in the working pattern. The education industry is not an exception. The way the college students and parents have been thinking in this pandemic situation has seen a paradigm shift. However, this tough period is full of challenges for the teachers as well as students. It is now of utmost importance to understand and learn a dynamic shift from offline mode to the online mode of teaching and learning process.  However, the researcher feels that the retention of the students is significantly low as compared to face-to-face interaction or lecture method in the classroom. In this study, the researchers would try to validate the effectiveness of online academic engagement on undergraduate students.
