Data collection for this study was carried out through the use of focus group discussions where participants were asked questions based on the objective of the study.FindingsThe present findings confirm that the mode of instruction delivery was not online teaching rather emergency remote online teaching. Another conclusion that was drawn was with regards to training, use of resources and issues of measurement and evaluation. The study summarized that there was little or no training for the teaching staff before the switch to EROT as instructors were only given guidelines on what to do to implement their lesson plans.Originality/valueEmergency remote online teaching is a newly emerging approach to lesson delivery, especially in an emergency situation.
