Teachers worldwide are yet to gain a strong foothold to make their virtual classes appealing to the student community. Although online teaching started as a medium to survive and continue during the pandemic, it proved to be an appreciated and prized possibility in challenging situations where in-class teaching might have failed to take place. The workshop drew the participants' attention to misunderstood notions and beliefs associated with online classes facilitated them to understand new prospective insights in remote teaching.
