This study focuses on identifying students’ perspectives on online learning using e-learning in algorithms and programming courses in higher education, especially in the Department of Electronic Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Negeri Padang. In this regard, students’ perceptions of online learning, ability to use e-learning, information absorbing ability, and e-learning platform utilization were analyzed. This study uses a quantitative research approach. The online survey was conducted based on Google Forms. Data were collected from 238 students. As a result of the study, the students’ overall perception of the teaching or learning process of algorithms and programming using e-learning was found to be quite positive (76.71%). The benefits of online learning in this way are more flexible because students can easily access it anytime, anywhere, and students feel safer with online learning while avoiding the risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus. Technical issues were the most important, followed by teachers’ lack of skills, teaching style, and digital learning materials inadequately adapted to the online environment (69.87%). The difficulty is that students cannot interact with the lecturers or communicate with them well. However, students said they were ready for online learning (79.77%).
