Our country is going through a dangerous pandemic which has disrupted the academy year, cancelled classes and examinations. To run the education system smoothly through this difficult time Government have started a new class system that is Online classes. Online classes are now playing a vital role in the student life. We don’t know when the whole country will overcome from this pandemic so online classes are good and important for every student. It involves the use of digital services to create a virtual classroom. The teacher and students sign into a communication application and sit in front of their device.
Online learning is a form of distance learning that takes place over the internet.Shy students are able to ask questions because they can ask them online without facing the instructor. An access to all resources of a traditional course helps participants learn wherever they are, leaving them the freedom to choose the time for study. With basically an Internet connection, a person can attend different courses. Education system also conduct exams in online format. That is a very good approach. There is no chance of getting infected by virus. Student can easily can study without having any difficulties. All the information that you will need will be safely stored in an online database. This includes things like live discussion documents, training materials and emails. This means that if there’s ever anything that needs to be clarified, the student will be able to access these documents fast, saving valuable time. This is especially useful for individuals that need to carry out research for a project and submit their findings to a panel.Students in traditional classrooms may not get the personalized attention they need to have concepts clarified. Although class sizes are small at CCA, most colleges have classes of students that number in the hundreds. This is not a problem for this type of education because online guided discussions and personal talk time with their professors and lecturers is a hallmark of online classes. This increases the chances of a student performing well due to the time their instructors give them. This also enhances their problem-solving and communication skills, as well as knowing how to defend their arguments to superiors if needed.
However there are many disadvantages of online class like internet problem,a lay man cannot use the internet for classes,etc.A very strong disadvantage of online classes is the lack of interaction with peers. However, fortunately today’s generation has access to data networks and voice and video calls are possible with ease. Though it is not the same as face-to-face conversations, it allows students to interact with friends and even teachers. Teachers have gone out of the way to help students and are on duty practically all day.Online class method currently practiced in education tend to make participating students undergo contemplation, remoteness and a lack of interaction. As a result, many of the students and teachers who inevitably spend much of their time online can start experiencing signs of social isolation, due to the lack of human communication in their lives. Social isolation coupled with a lack of communication often leads to several mental health issues such as heightened stress, anxiety, and negative thoughts.Lack of self-motivation among students continues to be one of the primary reasons why students fail to complete online classes. Unfortunately, one of the biggest disadvantages of online class continues to be cheating through various methods. Compared to on-campus students, online students can cheat on assessments more easily as they take assessments in their own environment and while using their personal computer. The students cannot be directly observed during assessments without a video feed, making cheat detection during online assessments more complicated than for traditional testing procedures.The lack of face-to-face communication ties together with many of the previously mentioned disadvantages of online learning. A lack of any kind of face-to-face communication with the instructor inhibits student feedback, causes social isolation, and could cause students to feel a lack of pressure.
Online classes have both advantages and disadvantages but still we have to go with it because for now this is the best way to deal with the pandemic. We should all hope to overcome this big problem very soon.
