Technology has a great impact in the educational system and recently online education is increasing rapidly. The unprecedented phenomena of Covid- 19 pandemic have forced the educational institutions to be closed down and thus resulted a gap in teaching delivery and learning effectiveness in online class. As number of online classes has increased tremendously, teachers and students faces many challenges when educational institutions were forced to adapt to the online education to address the situation. Effective online teaching connects and works in synchrony with students’ ability to obtain quality-learning experience. The use of technology has facilitated teachers around the world and proved to be an effective teaching aid however they need to possess the necessary skills in order for the teaching to positively impact student’s learning outcomes. Thus, it is vital for the educators to be familiar with the educational technology tools and apps.

Interviews were conducted among educators of elementary and high school to share their opinions and discuss their experience and potentially how they can reduce these barriers in using digital platform. Findings stated that the biggest challenges is not necessarily on the usage of the educational digital tools itself, but learning and knowing the best use of internet and technology which includes knowledge about the software and hardware. One should be familiar with the basic knowledge of technology hardware and software in order to fully utilise technology for effective teaching in online class. © School of Engineering, Taylor’s University.
