  • The online educational arena is flourishing in the current situation mainly due to the Covid-19 pandemic and secondly because for many employed people it is a great way to learn and enhance ones skills in ones spare time. In your case you are cut of from the studies for quite some time so yo might have to work a bit hard to recollect your old learnings and make them fresh in addition to plan for an online educational course.
    In this matter, one thing which is of primary concern is that you have to find out what is your interest area and where you feel learning as a comfortable and pleasant thing. This question is to be answered because a person takes interest only in that area where his or her interest lies. It is a main point in pursuing education in a particular stream or subject.
    There are now two ways of thinking at this juncture for you. First is acquire some higher education online just like that for your personal benefit so that in future if required you can opt for a job also. Another is acquire an education from the point of making a career. Accordingly the selection of the course might differ. We will now examine all sir of possibilities in this pursuit one by one.
    Have you got interest in teaching area and want to make a carer in it. If yes, then you have to go for online graduation course in the discipline of your choice. It is not necessary that you have to continue in Science stream only. You can very well go for the arts, humanities and languages also. Once you complete that then you can aspire for online B.Ed. course which is necessary for teaching profession.

Some of the universities/Institutes offering online courses are IGNOU, Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning, Sikkim Manipal University, IMT Distance and Open Learning Institute, Dr BR Ambedkar Open University, Netaji Subhas Open University etc.
    Another attractive option is to join some computer related course in online sites and learn some basic computer software related courses and once you have some proficiency in the basic computer software then you can think of doing advanced courses in it. This is a good option as there are online job opportunities in this line and with your science background it would not be difficult for you to pursue that learning path. Some of the good sites for this learning need are Coursera, Udemy, edx, Khan Academy, open culture, Alison, Stanford etc.
    There are options for online certificate or diploma courses in various trades and polytechnic related courses where the student has to attend a short practical session also as a part of the learning and you have to select the area of interest from the available courses. There are many sites where these courses are conducted. Some of them are edubull, SWAYAM, skylearning, joshtalks etc.
