Education involves the teaching-learning process wherein the paradigm shift has been from teaching to learning. This study provides a model for online Diabetes Education. It evaluates the effectiveness of online education through web based instruction. This study is conducted in order to create awareness about diabetes. The assessment is based on the pre-test, post-test and criterion referenced test. This single group experimental method is conducted for 30 respondents through online. Data collected were analysed using Descriptive and Inferential analysis. Results revealed that there is significant difference in the scores of pre-test and post-test. It is proved that the six modules prepared for creating diabetes education is very effective. This study concluded that the use of these modules increases the awareness and reduces the risk of diabetes.
