Abstract

The emergent COVID-19 pandemic forced the academic institutions throughout the world to embrace alternative ways to continue the teaching-learning activities. During this ‘global lockdown’ situation, the online-teaching appeared as a remedial measure to prevent cessation of teacher-student connection. Online teaching in most of the institutions has been an outcome of COVID-19 crises, thus, it becomes imperative to ascertain the attitude of teachers towards online teaching, so that the necessary measures may be taken for making this venture a success and substantial. The present study has been conducted to ascertain the opinion of teachers working in various colleges and universities of India and their attitude towards online teaching. The findings revealed no significant difference in attitude of teachers towards online teaching in context of their gender and type of institution, whereas the marital status of teachers was found to have a significant impact. A significant correlation was found between the age (negative relation), familiarity with online learning tool(s) and the attitude of teachers with respect to online teaching. The results of the study brought forward the need for imparting training to teachers and a better communication between teachers and Information Technology staff for developing a positive attitude amongst teachers for persuasive online teaching.
