Virtual learning is a part of the new technology development among learners globally, with the help of technology from anywhere anytime as per your convenience. Virtual learning has gained momentum recently after the lockdown in almost all the countries in the world due to the corona pandemic. There is a flood of webinars, workshops, FDP’s, and online learning, be it a school or college or any other institute. Everybody is using virtual classrooms for the teaching and learning process and to conduct all educational activities online. But the question here is; Are the learners learning and improving their performances through virtual learning? Are they enjoying virtual learning than the traditional face-to-face leanings? What do they think about the future of the learning system? All these questions were asked to the post-graduate students in the Mumbai region in an online survey who have attended the virtual classrooms. The results were analyzed based on their responses.
