ABSTRACT

COVID-19 has triggered a nationwide lockdown. This is the best time for the youth as well as others to upskill themselves. Amid the lockdown, schools, colleges and Universities have switched to one or another way of e-learning to ensure minimum academic loss to these students. Government’s e-learning platforms saw fotfall of 1.4 Crore since 23rd March 2020. While common communication platforms such as Whats App and other chatting platforms to share assignments and notes among students, teachers and students have also adopted other new technology platforms such as Skype, Zoom, Google Classroom, Google Hangout, Piazza to hold online classes and deliver structured lectures. The online learning platforms faced lots of problems due to slow internet and buffering. To overcome this problem to some extent, teachers are also sharing slides or hand written notes apart from recorded lectures and live sessions so that students with uncertain network access can also get at least some material. Technology continues to advance rapidly even today, and this is perhaps the best time for professionals to expand their horizons and learn new technologies. The initiative will equip students as well as professionals who wish to utilize this lockdown period in upskilling themselves.
