The current qualitative research explores six student teachers reflections on the online practicum after shifting from in-school to online delivery due to the COVID-19 quarantine. This research was undertaken with the application of quasi-structured interviews with six student teachers. The thematic analysis uncovered the student teachers perceptions regarding the online practicum and highlighted opportunities afforded by an online practicum, including time and effort efficiency; accurate performance and rapid completion, significant development of planning skills, ability to understand students and deal with different teaching situations, stimulation of innovation and creativity in teaching; and promotion of self-learning. The findings also underlined potential difficulties, including weak or interrupted internet signal, distractions in the online learning environment; the lack of a quiet place designated for meetings; the lack of trainees technical skills, and the absence of in-school experience. Several implications and suggestions have emerged in light of these findings.
