ABSTRACT: The year 2020 continues to be nerve-racking for each of us with unaccomplished promises, dubious challenges and frustrating milieu in the wake of novel COVID-19 rife. The current scenario impels us to attune a new lifestyle which seems to be common among the rich and the poor despite the varying social standards. This pandemic has a deep impact on our lives at the individual and communal level; including the educational sector, agricultural sector, business, industry, tourism, medical sphere, government and non-governmental organizations. With the increasing Corona reports, our country remains shut since the month of March, affecting the lives of millions of students and teachers. As the saying goes, “Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education. The human mind is our fundamental resource.” (John F. Kennedy); education is the key to unlock the enthralling future. Hence, the education system cannot stay frozen until everything becomes run-of-the-mill as it may take a long period for the virus to be immobilized globally. Thus, the education experts came up with the proposal to incorporate distance education mode into proximate education system, which is quite appreciable, but challenging at the same time. This paper shall decode the stand of different methodologies like mind-mapping, instructional design, adaptive learning, classroom-flipping, situational language teaching, task-based language teaching, multiple intelligence, content and language integrated learning (CLIL), self-learning, and how these techniques can be integrated to enhance online learning without hampering cognitive learning styles: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic; in a way useful, multi-sensory, friendly, effective and interesting especially for the Arts stream, thereby discussing how we can solve the ramifications of online-learning to a great extent, provided both learner and teacher autonomy are encouraged. Besides, this paper shall discuss the integration of learning and teaching strategies as per the global trends of education system curtailing rote learning.
