COVID - 19's Effect on the School Education System: Difficulties and Opportunities for Online Teaching and Learning

Varunjot Kaur [2]

Abstract: The COVID - 19 pandemic has significantly impacted classrooms worldwide, with millions of students experiencing disruptions due to the closure of schools and colleges in early 2020. The pandemic has led to challenges for teachers and students, such as a lack of resources and infrastructure, resistance to change, and distractions in the home environment. The pandemic has also highlighted the need for investment in technology and training for educators and students to make online education successful. The pandemic has impacted over 1.6 billion students in over 200 nations, making it the largest interruption to education systems in human history. Over 94% of the world's student population has been affected by the closure of schools, institutions, and other learning venues. Distance from society and mobility restrictions have significantly impacted classroom instruction. The potential loss of the 2020 - 2021 school year is causing concern, and new teaching and testing approaches must be developed and implemented. The COVID - 19 pandemic has also impacted online education in many fields, with urban and rural Indian education systems still immature. The government - mandated school closures in India on March 25, 2020, have had a profound effect on the educational sector, with 63 million educators in 165 countries impacted and around 320 million students in India. The pandemic has had both positive and negative effects on the Indian educational system. This article aims to examine the impact of the 2018 - 19 COVID - 19 pandemic on the delivery and evaluation of online courses taken by students at home.
