Online teaching and learning, conventional learning methods, the traditional system


Educational institutions (schools, colleges, and universities) in Pakistan are currently focused solely on conventional learning methods, that is, following the traditional system of face-to - face lectures in a classroom. While several academic units have now begun blended learning, several of them still remain stuck with old procedures.

 The unexpected outbreak of Covid-19, a deadly disease caused by a Corona Virus (SARS-CoV-2), shook the whole world. That was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. This situation threatened the worldwide education system, and compelled educators to switch overnight to an online teaching mode.

 Many previously unwilling academic institutions to shift their conventional pedagogical strategy had no choice but to turn completely to online teaching – learning. The aim of this study is to explain the importance of online education and describe it as best solution among student in this global pandemic.
