In this study we investigated the challenges of e-teaching in Higher Educational Institutions. With the advent of e-Learning tools, role of teachers have gone through phenomenal changes and teachingcommunity is struggling hard to tune up with contemporary requirements of mundane teaching modes called e-Teaching. Research indicates that teachers hold different perceptions about the role of technology: behaviorist (instrumental) and constructivist (substantive). Behaviorists assert on the visible aspects of learning with no value-implications for society while constructivists emphases more on the intellectual progress of the learner and community. Whatever the paradigm, teachers are confronting multiple barriers in adopting newteaching styles including demographic differences, training problems and resistance to change etc.
