The purpose of this study was to analyze the challenges and the ways of mitigation of teaching - learning situation at the time of lockdown as the impact of COVID-19 pandemic in Bangladesh. The study was based on the review of secondary data sources such as newspaper articles, recently published journal articles, reports of national and international organizations due to the social distancing precautionary measures outlined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a means of containing the spread of the virus from person to person. People feel the necessity of remote learning as distance learning in this lockdown situation. People are thinking to use different social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Skype, WhatsApp, Zoom, Instagram, Google Plus etc. for learning. The outbreak of COVID-19 has come as a wake-up call to ensure virtual learning and thus it has transformed the mode of teaching in the education sector. There is a risk of dropping out of a huge number of students from the education because of not meeting up the expenses of digital device and data plan. Discrimination may be created in quality education if it is not possible to bring maximum people under this access within a very short time.
