CONSTRAINTS AND CHALLENGES OF ONLINE TEACHING DURING COVID-19
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought significant changes in all spheres of life globally. The pandemic has adversely affected many sectors, and education is one of them. The paradigm shift of online teaching from face-to-face or conventional setup forced educators and teachers to accept these challenges and use different means of communication to deliver education to the students. As a result, traditional teaching has shifted to online. This shift has also raised various issues, constraints and challenges for the faculty members. Thus, this study aimed to determine the constraints and challenges of online teaching faced by the teachers of public sector universities during the COVID-19 pandemic. For data collection, an online survey was conducted with university teachers and a questionnaire based on five point Likert scale was used for this purpose. Descriptive statistics, correlation, and independent sample t-test were conducted for data analysis. This study provides insight into the challenges and identifies the constraints as a reference source for the university management and teachers.
