The Coronavirus (2019) explosion has put every economic region at risk. Educators are not an exception. The terrible result of lockdown in every area of the world, including India, has led to the protracted closure of schools and institutions, leaving education in shambles. The process of teaching and learning became online. The current research study identifies the multiple factors affecting online education and analyses the issues school educators face while teaching. A structured questionnaire was administered to 118 school teachers serving on boards and government schools across the Bengaluru North area, Karnataka. Results of the study indicate that teachers are using various appropriate methods in delivering online teaching. The study helps educational institutions and policymakers understand multiple problems with the teaching community in teaching virtually, thereby finding feasible options to make the inevitable online teaching system more effective.
