Abstract:

This research investigates the possibilities of online learning platforms and educational apps to improve teacher's professional development and efficacy. This study aims to add to the existing literature about the use of technology in education by looking into the possibilities of online learning platforms and educational apps for enriching teacher professional development and improving teacher performance. A qualitative research technique was used, with interviews conducted with teachers from several educational institutions in Lucknow. The sample included 50 teachers who actively use online learning platforms in their classroom instruction. A researcher conducted interviews and classroom observation to obtain data. According to the findings, online learning platforms and educational apps boost teacher efficacy, pedagogical abilities, understanding of the subject, and student engagement. Participants listed platforms with variable frequency of use, including Moodle, MOOC, Khan Academy, Edmodo, Byjus, Google Classroom, Quizlet, etc. The findings emphasize the importance of sufficient training and support to effectively incorporate new technologies into teaching methods. The study suggests introducing online learning platforms and educational apps into teacher education programs, providing the appropriate resources and support, and performing comprehensive investigations on their impact on teacher's performance and student learning outcomes.
