Effect Of COVID 19 On The Education Sector

Education Sector

Closure of all educational institutions worldwide:

The spread of COVID-19 worldwide has forced people to move into their homes for their safety and to prevent the spread of this virus. And due to this, most of the educational institutions worldwide had been shut down, and the level of education around the world have taken a massive toll worldwide.

The COVID-19 pandemic has already deranged the existing educational sectors. Major processes such as admission cycles, student enrolment, consulting activities, cash flow, and many more similar processes have been affected. A massive progress drops in fields like research and study have caused the situation to get even worse.

But thanks to the technology around, problems can be solved in ways no one could have imagined in the last few years. The concept of taking the education system online helped educational institutions to tackle the ongoing problem and continue to impart education to their students. And online means have also helped in restarting several other functions such as, enrolments and admission processes, which weren’t implemented in the past years properly.

Rise of innovation in the education sector:

The current situation has helped in the development of interactive technologies to help teachers and students to learn online. Innovations are being made into the existing technologies to adapt the means towards the education system. Interactive applications are being developed to connect students to their teachers, and vice-versa. Also, these applications are helpful in several ways that include, broadcasting live classes, lecture sessions, online seminars or webinars, and so on.

The release of such innovation has not only brought education into people’s homes but has also offered more time for students to do what they are interested in. This way, students won’t have to worry about giving all of their time inside the college schedule, they now have a chance to explore all the potential skills around them, polish these skills, and find their passion. And when these difficult times are over, students can use these new skills to work in various sectors, thus, contributing to society’s growth.

E-Learning becomes the new culture in modern education:

A few years ago, the concept of e-learning was far too vague to be recognized as a proper means for education. But during this COVID-19 pandemic and with all of the lockdown situations worldwide, it has become impossible for students, faculty members, teachers, and other staff to move out of their homes and go to their respective institutions to continue the learning process. And in such times, the online means have bloomed to its potential, it has helped to bring this learning in schools, colleges, and other educational institutions into people’s hands. Any gadgets such as a tablet, smartphone, or PC with access to the internet can make learning possible while staying put inside homes.

The concept of e-learning might look new and difficult for students since everyone is adapted to the physical level of communication, which often happens inside a classroom. This level of communication is said to be more effective, but at such times, encouraging students to adapt to the virtual level of communication can reduce the possibilities of complications that arise in online classes.

Final words:

So, what can be done to minimize these effects? What measures should the authorities take to tackle the given crisis befalling on education? How can educational institutions counter the effects on a nation-wide scale?

The answer to all of these queries is very difficult to answer. There have been no reports on when the crisis would end, and there have been no reports of any counter-measures that are being taken to tackle these effects. So, the only advice that goes towards the authorities is the need to adopt new resources. New and different resources that could be adapted by students and teachers in such a way that the loss inflicted in all these months can be recovered as soon as possible.

For instance, instead of skipping internal assessments, schools or colleges should postpone the dates to a fixed date of physical assessment. And for those who are fresh out of colleges, institutions should focus their resources on providing them with opportunities to gain experience in the industry. New policies should be adopted to prevent the growth of unemployment.
