In India educational institutions are currently grounded only on traditional methods of learning, they follow the traditional arrangements of face-to-face learning methods in a classroom. Although many educational institutions at different levels (Schools, Colleges, Universities) have also started blended learning, still most of them are stuck with the procedures which are yet to rejuvenate. The sudden burst of CoronaVirus (SARS-CoV-2) shook the entire world and has interrupted all facets of our daily lives. This situation challenged the education system across the world and forced educators to shift to an online mode of teaching overnight. Many academic institutions that were earlier indisposed to change their traditional pedagogical approach had no option but to shift entirely to online teaching-learning. This study elucidates the importance of online learning and elaborates opportunities & challenges of e-learning modes in the time of crisis. This research piece sheds some light on the growth of IT-enabled tools (EdTech) during the time of the pandemic. In concluding interpretations this research article places suggestions for academic institutions on how to deal with challenges associated with online learning.
