Asian Journal of Research in Nursing and Health,
The present study discusses regarding the shifting of in-person learning to virtual learning particularly in the field of Nursing. Also, it focuses on the challenges which are faced by the students and teachers during this pandemic and various strategies to combat those challenges. 2019 novel Corona virus (COVID -19) or the severe acute respiratory syndrome corona virus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is an infectious disease caused by newly discovered corona virus. Synchronous virtual learning enables participants to engage in learning at the same time through same online environment, example - live webinars while in asynchronous virtual learning the participants are not engaged in the learning process at the same time. The experiences of teachers on virtual learning vary on individual basis. For some teachers, the COVID 19 has changed the way of teaching. They are able to communicate with students more efficiently and effectively through video meetings, chat groups, document sharing. Amidst of this pandemic technology enables the education to be on the go when the world has physically shut down schools and colleges. A key aspect of this pandemic is to make sure that teaching learning process is uninterrupted, continuous and equally accessible. This is the ideal time for a paradigm shift.
