In almost all countries, classroom teaching has been suspended from mid March 2020 and currently no fresh dates have been announced by Governments to start the date. In view of this, almost all educational institutions in India are offering a variety of alternative teaching learning platforms to their students, whether Government run Institutions or privately run Institutions. The Institutions also conducted or planning to conduct their internal or final examinations through various platforms. In this paper, a number of online options for teaching and evaluation are discussed. The study is limited to India and discussion of software based platforms, whether web based or mobile apps based are considered. The research is limited to higher education sector specifically in undergraduate engineering education.
