In order to solve the education problems caused by teachers and students’ unavoidable absence in school during the COVID-19 pandemic, a series of online education activities were carried out by Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunication in early March. To explore students and teachers’ degree of satisfaction with distance education, this paper investigates multiple dimensions such as students’ degree of satisfaction with teachers, the regional living standard, educational resources and negative factors that reduce the students’ degree of satisfaction, etc. Furthermore, the attitude of teachers toward distance education may be partially reflected by the arrangement of live classes. All of the statistics are analyzed by comparing the distribution of votes. The results show that the degree of satisfaction by students and teachers with distance education is generally high but varies in areas with different living standards. In addition, we find that students are more sensitive to the lack of a learning atmosphere.
