Remote learning; The Way to Move Forward During COVID-19

The pandemic has grown on a massive scale with up to 197 countries of the world reporting cases of COVID-19. In such unprecedented times, everything has become difficult. Apart from the disease outbreak and the loss of life, the virus has also disrupted all other walks of life as well. From normal day activities to businesses being shut down, it seems that the world had no idea what was coming their way and eventually we witnessed a lockdown globally. Even highly developed countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia have had difficulty in containing the losses from the virus up till now.

The Impact on Education Centres Worldwide

Schools, colleges and higher degree education across the world have been closed down temporarily to contain the spread of the coronavirus. Initially, there were reports that these institutes would reopen around April 30, 2020 but due to a constant increase in the number of cases, they have been closed till the end of May.

This has enforced drastic changes in the educational sector as institutes are now beginning to move towards online teaching and training. The transition from physical learning to remote learning has not been frictionless up till now but it reflects positivity that it can certainly go along.

Employers have also been provided the opportunity to work from home. Large and medium scale organizations have recognized the importance of social distancing and are providing remote working opportunities to their employers. This is an important implication because if organizations were to shut down; it would have further added to the stress of individuals by becoming unemployed.
