Traditional education has been around for thousands of years. Traditional education emphasizes direct instruction to the students and students learn through listening and observation. The education which is taught in the schools today is the modern education. Modern education includes listening, writing, visualizing, imagining, and thinking skills. This is done in a very formal way. The methodology used for teaching is very interactive. Modern education is just an evolution of the traditional education which was imparted to the students a few years back. We do not recommend closing schools and colleges and only offering online courses. Use of technology in education is resulting in different concepts in the system, for instance the move from teacher-centric education to student-centric education. Instead of replacing formal education with online education, they can be combined to create a more effective, efficient, and interactive learning experience. Pedagogy in digital education is an important link between course content, educationists, technology and course-takers. In this paper we discussed the perception and problems faced by the teachers and discussed the adaptation of new thing for using online teaching.
