Throughout the world, since March 2020, most of the academic institutions are partially or
completely closed during the lockdown due to the spread of novel coronavirus – COVID-19. During this
lockdown, many educational institutes have encouraged the students and faculty to adopt online teaching
methodologies. There are mainly two approaches for online teaching – the first one is learning through the
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) which includes standard platforms like Coursera, Udemy, edX,
NPTEL, etc.; and the second one is through the online live lectures. A self-motivated learner may appreciate
both the aforementioned approaches for online learning; however, in many cases the first approach may not
work due to various reasons, which include lack of interactionwith the instructor, keep on postpone the lectures
as the recorded videos are always available online for later utilization, etc. This paper presents a uniqueblend of
online live lectures and hands-on teaching/learning methodology, which will ensure the maximum learning in
terms of achieving the desired outcomes of the online course. The learning is through the live lectures, code
demonstrations, providing them the skeleton of the code, correlating the lectures through the practical
applications and analyzing recent research papers and finally obtaining the results through simulations and daily
assessment through quizzes. This unique teaching/learning methodology has been validated through the student
and faculty development programs. More specifically, the advancements in the control systems design have
been explored by the participants – a total of in excess of five hundred participantsfrom India and abroad (for the
both students and faculty development programs) have gone through this unique methodology and 98% of them
have been benefitted as compared to other online teaching methodologies.This paper discusses the proposed
unique online teaching methodology and its deployment for a student develop program on control systems
