The educational process grows intellectual and critical thinking which helps a person to make correct or optimal decisions by using logic, calculations, and experiments. This factor helps a person to use available resources in an optimal way to maximize the outcome. Unfortunately, along with all other areas, the educational process was seized initially during COVID-19 as well. To continue the education process in lockdowns, academia has shifted from traditional learning (TL) towards the online learning (OL) process. Instructors and learners of different academies belong to different fields and backgrounds. Thus, it is not easy to smoothly adopt OL for all of them. Therefore, this study is aimed to conduct a survey to check the feasibility of the adoption of OL for both types of audiences i.e. instructors and learners. The purpose is to compare the thoughts of both audiences and find the difference between them by using different descriptive and inferential statistical techniques and to have a brief overview of OL and TL in the academies of Pakistan. This study will help academies to understand the flaws, gaps, and limitations of OL from instructors' and learners' perspectives as the gaps can be filled by improving existing approaches to make the OL system smoothly adoptable by everyone in Pakistan in the future.
