  Covid-19, which was unknown to most people, would have a major
impact on our lives. Covid-19 spread quickly like a wild forest
fire. People around the globe accepted many changes, but it took
time for people to adjust to this new normal.

Online education is fast becoming one of the most efficient ways
to educate. The virus's impact was so severe that online
education quickly became a part of our ever-growing world. This
led to the closing of schools and the cessation of all physical
contact between teachers and students. The good news is that most
schools and educational institutions resorted to online education
to resume their studies. The rise of e-learning has made
education radically different. It allows students to learn
remotely from their computers, rather than in classrooms.

Online classes and technology are now a hero during the lockdown.
We are all still connected to education, despite being under
house arrest. Students are unable to keep in touch with the
outside world because of the lockdown. Online classes are the
only thing that has provided a temporary respite for students'
mental well-being. Teachers ensured that students' learning was
not compromised. They took a huge leap forward to find solutions
to problems and create new learning environments to help students
learn. Because they had little time to prepare, teachers modified
curriculums, created new lesson plans, and planned activities so
that students can continue learning online.

Online courses are a growing trend for students across the world.
Digital learning makes it easy to find files and folders, which
can be organized and saved without any physical damage. Students
can quickly access their notes and assignments with just a click.
Advanced technology has made this method of learning not only
easier but also more fun and engaging. Technology-enabled
education is more beneficial than traditional methods of
learning. This technology makes dull subjects interesting and
enjoyable. Because both learning material and classes were
accessible online, it was easy for students to access classes
anywhere in the world. The integration of online learning
platforms with modern interactive applications has made it easier
for both students as well as teachers to attend online classes.
More students can express themselves online using some online
applications. The teachers are able to easily track down those
students who failed to submit their assignments online. Students
are more careful with their submissions online. Students can
learn online and become independent learners before entering the
real world. Students had the chance to learn from new platforms
and learning apps during class. This helped them to grow their
skills and capabilities, which in turn accelerated their growth.
Some students are responding well to the interactive learning
environment provided online by teachers, while others require a
push at times.

Most private and public schools made the transition smoothly to
online platforms like Zoom, Google classrooms, Microsoft team,
and others. It is still a daunting task for many. There are many
challenges to online learning. Although online learning was a key
component of the pandemic's success, it is not easy to ignore its
many consequences. Due to the non-availability or network of
smartphones, laptops, or computers, students cannot access online
classes. Unfortunately, this has led to more people being on the
receiving end. This can increase the inequality between
demography and class in terms of access to quality education.

Students face one of the greatest challenges in online learning:
the inability to concentrate for extended periods of time on a
screen. Online distractions can be distracting and attractive to
students in a lot of cases. The teachers made great efforts to
ensure that students are focused and engaged in the online class.
Internet connectivity is crucial to online classes. Online
classes may not be 100% reliable. Although internet connectivity
has greatly improved in the past few decades, there are still
some areas where people don't have access to good internet speeds
and connectivity. Inconsistent internet connectivity is a common
excuse for students to ignore important requirements, such as
active visual presence. This is vital for proper vigilance.
Students and teachers will feel disconnected if the cameras are
off. Students would often log in to the class and then be
distracted by other activities. The students don't have to follow
the guidelines and boundaries of a classroom setting. This makes
it appear that they do not value the curriculum. You may not have
taken the notebook work seriously. Students may become distracted
while learning online. The benefit of face-to-face interactions
with peers, which are often moderated by a teacher, is offered in
traditional classroom education. For children in their early
years of development, physical classroom interaction is a safe
place for them to socialize and develop skills such as empathy
and cooperation. It supports their overall development as well as
real-life situations.

Learning is never finished, I believe it was a constant process.
It evolved not only to survive but also to thrive. Technology is
the key enabler of that evolution which itself is an invention.
The advancement of technology has enabled learning. Parents and
teachers are essential in helping students navigate this
challenging time of learning. Online and offline learning could
go hand in hand, and eventually online education will be an
integral part of school education. In the future, education will
be hybrid. Covid is a time when technology was a part of
academics. Online programs and apps have allowed students and
teachers to acquire new skills that support their learning and
provide support. Online teaching is not a substitute for
traditional classroom teaching. After the pandemic, we will have
to go back to traditional teaching.
