Reshaping Education: The Legacy of Online Learning Post Pandemic

– Deva Narayan

The pandemic and lockdown have brought about significant and diverse changes in the field of education. The adoption of new methods that eliminate physical interaction between teachers and students has created a wide range of opportunities to enhance the quality of education. During the initial stages of the lockdown, online classes were rough, unorganized, and messy. However, over time, many companies such as Google and Zoom have updated their platforms to improve the quality of media sharing and online teaching.

Many other ed-tech companies also viewed the lockdown as a great opportunity and capitalized on it, including BYJU’s, Vedantu, and Unacademy. The inability to attend traditional tuition classes led these companies to open their platforms for online tuition, catering to students during the lockdown period. As the pandemic has settled in most regions and society has returned to its former routines, the field of education has continued to improve following the digitization that occurred during the pandemic.

Google Classroom has enabled teachers to share numerous notes, important videos, question papers, and other academic materials online without the need for manual distribution in class. Students can now access their files from anywhere on the planet as long as they have an internet connection and a Gmail account. Additionally, Google expanded its online meeting platform known as Meet, allowing teachers to conduct classes for students who may have missed important topics due to regional issues.

BYJU’s and other similar online tuition platforms have experienced a significant boom in both their industry and quality. Thousands of academic materials have been shared through these platforms with students, some available for free and others behind a paywall. Obtaining sample question papers has become easier, whereas previously, they could only be acquired from dubious internet sources or teachers. Children undergoing homeschooling now have access to numerous books and notes. Another notable outcome of the increase in online education is the rising number of educational content creators on YouTube. Channels such as XYLEM, PhysicsWallah, and others have produced educational content that greatly aids students in preparing for exams.

Children from economically weaker families can now access PDF files of textbook chapters online for free. Additionally, competitive exam attendees are provided with many videos, guides, and notes to better prepare for their respective examinations. The future of many industries lies in digitization, and the education industry is one of the best examples to demonstrate this trend.
