Education is endless, we cannot define its scope. It's the key factor to survive & sustain life on this earth.
On the second week of March 2020 there was a pause to this education. Learning had stopped, and nobody knew when it could restart again. Covid 19 pandemic has brought drastic and big move in the mode of education. Nearly 3 to 4 months students were disconnected with education & learning. It was really a tough time for all of us, especially students, teachers and educational institutions.
But thanks to technology, which connected us with learning in this pandemic time. Many educational and meeting apps gained immense popularity and had earned a high income by providing a platform for the process of E-Learning.
Google meet, Zoom app, Skype are some of the popular apps which connected entire student community with learning. There were hindrances in this online mode, but it was the only option left to stay active and connected with education.
Teachers and lecturers did a great and tremendous job. Hats off to the teaching faculties, because looking at the desktop or laptop screen and teaching is very hectic and toughest job. It's very difficult to understand the situation of teachers, because teaching students in the classroom is totally different and difficult in the online mode.
But our Indian teachers proved that they can do anything for students’ future. And this passion in them urged them to adapt to this online mode of teaching and are successfully doing it. Words are less to thank the efforts of teachers. Teachers are struggling a lot in this mode of teaching, as they have to ensure that all are listening to the class, check the connectivity and conduct classes. Many obstacles are faced by the teachers in this new mode.
Before the pandemic, there was online teaching through various apps but it was not popular & utilised by a large group of students and teachers. But when the emergency proclaimed we Indians have proved that we will not let this learning process halt for more months, so government and universities came up with online learning mode so that learning continues and students’ life does not get affected much by the pandemic.
Now I am a final year UG student, my aim is also to become a lecturer, I am empathetic to all the teachers out there. I really thank and appreciate all the teachers who have come up and adapted this new mode of teaching. Hats off to all the Teachers. Your efforts are not wasted as the students are also indulged and have adapted this mode of learning too.
Lastly, I would like to tell you that any pandemic or national emergency cannot stop the learning process for a long duration. Almighty will give alternative ways to continue and stay connected with learning. Till then students, keep learning and teachers, keep teaching. Thank you again to all the teachers out there.
