Research suggests that online teaching has emerged as a crucial field of study in virtual education. The central aim of online teaching implies integration of new electronic devices and technologies in such a way so that it meets the goals of the curriculum and student learning environment without affecting the active learning in both online and offline mode. Many effective teaching methods are practiced by the educators to deliver the course online during class hours and outside class. In this paper, we present student’s response in promoting self-learning and collaborative-learning approaches. To achieve this, proper implementation and structuring of course modules, usage of appropriate software’s, proper organisation of learning aids are considered to meet the competency needs of students that supports to enhance their self-learning abilities. Student evaluation during class hours enables educators to analyse effectiveness of teaching in online classes. The results of this approach is evaluated by collecting student’s response.
