Abstract:

The formal education in the subject of dairy science started in year 1923 with establishment of the “Imperial Institute of Animal Husbandry and Dairying” at Bangalore. At present there are around 20 Dairy Science colleges associated with the Indian Council of Agricultural Research / State Agricultural Universities in India. Due to COVID-19 pandemic there has been an increasing movement towards teaching online because of lockdown and subsequent shutting down of schools, colleges and universities for an indefinite time. Though, it is an accepted assumption that no pedagogical approach can replace the peak position of formal education. But, as a result of COVID-19 crisis, online education became a pedagogical shift from traditional method to the modern ICT based approach of teaching-learning from classroom to virtual classroom.
