In no realm of life has COVID-19 pandemic wreaked as much visible upheaval as education. The COVID 19 pandemic resulted in total closure of schools in India for almost four to five months now. Lectures quickly shifted to online platforms, posing challenges to teachers and students. The use of education apps has exploded. Online education which was a misty prospect on the horizon before the pandemic, has now become the mainstay. And after the pandemic is over most of the teachers might switch back to the traditional mode of teaching. All of a sudden shift to digital learning due to COVID-19 pandemic has been troublesome for many teachers and students. In this paper we discuss an e moderation model and how it can provide a frame work to teachers for effective online learning. A survey was also done based on the different stages of the model. To understand teachers experiences and perceptions about online teaching and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic period and their preparedness in using e-moderation for online learning, the survey was conducted. The study brings out key issues which need to be addressed by the teachers during planning online education. Teachers need to create an environment of socialization, knowledge construction and critical thinking for successful online learning.
