This research examines the efficacy and productivity disparities between pre- and post-pandemic educational approaches, navigating the intricate challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic in Indian higher education. Focused on stakeholders within education institutions, 582 responses were acquired through stratified random sampling using Google Forms. Meticulous SPSS analysis reveals a significant decline in productivity, particularly among 367 female respondents. The study underscores nuanced health challenges faced by learners and educators, including compromised vision, persistent distractions, and diminished attention spans. It advocates for integrating online pedagogical methods into mainstream academic practices, suggesting strategic models like flipped classrooms and blended learning. Emphasizing the need for a technologically adept pedagogical landscape, the study implicates an antiquated educational policy framework for inadequate responses to technological advancements. Recommendations stress proactive policy adjustments and the imperative of equipping educators and students with essential technological proficiencies to adeptly navigate unforeseen educational challenges.
