Minister Ramesh Pokri: Conference about Online Classes with Vice President of Universities in India. Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokri will hold consultations with university associates today. The video conference, which will be held in Delhi, will focus on Online classes, including the implementation of a new education policy.
The COVID-19 has resulted in schools shut all across the world. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms. Research suggests that online learning has been shown to increase retention of information, and take less time, meaning the changes coronavirus have caused might be here to stay.
It is noteworthy that due to the spread of Corona 2nd wave across the country, university courses and exams are being conducted online.
Most high-end private and public institutions have made the switch smoothly using online platforms such as Zoom, Google classrooms, Microsoft teams, etc., while many still find it a hard task. The challenges of online education are multifaceted. It is time that we Indians, as a society, understand the realms of online education.
