Preparing and supporting online teachers to meet the diverse student needs is vital for the success of online learning. In this process of learning, teachers are trying to adapt their teaching practice to a technologically mediated medium, by making use of the technological tools that enhance the quality of instruction. In the absence of face-to-face interactions with the students, the online teachers need to use other means of reaching out and communicating with their students and one aspect of technology that can be harnessed for this purpose is emerging technologies.Not only does the use of emerging technologies benefit the tech savvy millennial student, but is also useful for the students who are not so tech savvy because it opens new windows to learn and work in a networked global world. As the students are a millennial generation it is important for the teachers to reach out to them with the tools that speak to them and integrate them in their teaching practice.
