Initially Students felt some difficulty in Online teaching because they are addicted and habituated for traditional way of teaching using chalk and talk by their faculty members. Later they felt online teaching is an alternate source of teaching during Covid19 pandemic, because staff and students do not get an opportunity to be in physical class room due to lock down effect. This paper deals with the technical tools like Reading Rockets, Rewordify, Immersive Reader, etc to enhance reading skills of UG Engineering students.
