Jalandhar, March 18
With all educational institutes shut until March 31 amid the Covid-19 scare and the strong possibility of the shutdown getting extended, many institutes in the city have started shifting to e-learning.
After Lovely Professional University announced virtual classes for all courses two days ago, more colleges and schools have followed suit. Police DAV Public School and St Joseph’s Convent School have already begun using Snap Homework app to inform parents of syllabus and chapters that children can learn at home.
Dilpreet Kaur, the mother of a Class VI student at St Joseph’s School, said she has been asked by the school authorities to teach her child two mathematics chapters at home. Some schools have also announced that they would share tutorials through the app.
At Hans Raj Mahila Maha Vidyalaya, teachers are busy uploading e-lectures and other digital material online for students to ensure continuous learning. College principal Ajay Sareen said the college has its own e-learning management system, which is being used to upload video lectures and other study material for the past two years. “Lectures are also available on social media platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook and YouTube. Students can also get their doubts cleared on the apps,” an official of the college said.
Kanya Maha Vidyalaya (KMV) has introduced a Teaching Learning Management Programme. Besides, it has commenced e-classes of all courses with immediate effect so that students don’t have to suffer.
Principal Dr Atima Sharma Dwivedi said students had been guided to attend online classes. “Each student has been provided with user ID and password. Teachers have commenced their classes through recorded lessons and PPTs,” she said, adding that they might have a paucity of time to conduct the mid-semester test, so the assessment will be done on the basis of assignments.
