The study’s goal was to evaluate the efficacy and reach of internet education during the CoV-19 epidemic by surveying people in both urban and rural settings. Screen time, device type, and weekly itinerary were only some of the metrics used to analyse the 454 respondents who filled out the study. The effectiveness of online learning was studied using a chi-square analysis in SPSS software, and the stress brought on by excessive mobile device usage was evaluated in both the urban and rural populations of Chennai and Kanchipuram. The sample size was determined using a confidence interval of 95%, a significance level of =0.05, and a G-power of 80%. Online courses caused higher physical discomfort and mental strain for respondents living in urban areas (43.61%) than those living in rural areas (31.58 percent). Chi-square values of 23.173 and 20.993 for urban and rural areas, respectively, using three variables as predictors, are statistically significant at the P0.001 level. The results showed that urbanites adapted to online learning faster than those in rural areas, but they also reported higher levels of stress due to their increased reliance on electronic devices and the pressures of implementing educational changes grounded on cutting-edge research.
