The present study examined the Perception on Online Education using social media learning among Higher Secondary School Students with Special Reference to the Pandemic Period. The researcher randomly selected 250 higher secondary school students who have online education through social media among higher secondary school students from different schools in the Coimbatore district. The investigator constructed a self-made tool for this study and framed 35 statements for perception on online education using social media learning among higher secondary school students. The tool reliability value was 0.887. The results showed that many students used social media in online education, particularly in Google classroom; YouTube, Whatsapp, Zoom Meet, Linkedin, and weber Meet, during the pandemic period in academic programs. The study's findings also suggest that the online education system could positively impact the students’ academic progress and their regular classroom teaching. Online education using social media progresses the students' cooperative learning, and their declaration with the teachers becomes in formal, which means, in terms of student-centred education, online education is critical.
