Online Education During Pandemic and Its Impact in India


The pandemic Covid-19 has spread over the whole world and compelled human society to maintain physical distancing, which has significantly disrupted the education sector. According to a UNESCO report, it had affected more than 90% of the total world’s student population during mid-April 2020. In India, more than 32 crores of students have been affected. Lockdown disturbed the schedules of every student though it is an exceptional situation in the history of education. COVID-19 has created many opportunities to come out of the rigorous classroom teaching model to a new era of the digital model and taught many lessons and created many challenges and opportunities for the educational institutes to strengthen their technical knowledge and infrastructure. New ways of delivery and assessments of learning opened immense opportunities for a major transformation around curriculum development and pedagogy. However, it has a negative impact as well. This involves, of course, the inability to access the digital world and global education, significant impact on educational activities, employment, and lack of nutrition due to school closure. Studies also show a significant increase in mental illness cases among students. Thus, the presentation will focus on comparative discussion based on the reviewing literature and declared data and documents and will cover the overall impact of online education in terms of positive and negative in the areas of school and college education in India, which would include all relevant areas related to academics as well as mental health.
