Abstract: 
As university lecturers of an education program, we aim to enhance community college
lecturers' social and economic well-being, empowering them with skills for employment and
community development. We respond to the need to train lecturers and prospective Adult and
Community Education lecturers in South Africa. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our traditional
content delivery method has shifted to online teaching and learning. This shift can negatively and
positively impact adult students' learning processes. Therefore, it is crucial to investigate the
perceptions of students involved in online teaching and learning approaches. To achieve this, we
adopted a qualitative approach and an experimental design, collecting data from 22 students deemed
information-rich. Thematic content analysis was used to analyze the data collected, and the results
positively reflected the relevance of the education program and online teaching and learning. Based on
the emergent results, we recommend proper funding and close monitoring of the entire education
programme to ensure quality delivery using online approaches.
