    How can online classes cope up with the regular classroom interactions?

    Online classes have become a hot topic in both states. viz., Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Discussions on this issue are going on in the high court of Telangana. It is not given an answer to the solution to the online learning of pupils during this COVID-19 pandemic. Situations seem to be far from the new academic year, instead, raising new innovative thoughts in the minds of private schools. So, they come to the platform with online classes. Are they a substitute for original classroom interaction with the teacher? Is it beneficial for the students or to schools? Parents have to think over this issue in a broad mind.

    Indian students aren't habitual to online classes. Our system of education has been conventional where teacher and students interact each other in classroom and this way of getting education is comfortable, easy and feasible as well. Online classes aren't new in western countries so it's quite normal for them but in India due to covid 19 online teaching is being introduced in maximum number of schools, colleges, institutes etc and those students who have never studied online finding it a bit awkward, but if it's continued then gradually it'll become a normal thing for them.

    A teacher gave time to all his 6th class students to come online at 11 a.m. Since it's been raining continuously a boy asked his mother if it'd be a holiday because of rain.

    The present situation in the country is such that there is no other go other than the online classes. Agreed they are no substitute to the formal teaching, but then it is kind of impossible to open the schools and colleges now, given that the virus is still spreading far and wide and infecting people in thousands, in one single day itself. So till that time, maybe early next year or so, when either the vaccine will come or the virus will lose its power due to herd immunity, we have to manage with the online classes. Whether as teachers, parents or students, we like it or not, we have to accept it. It is true that everyone does not have the infrastructure for online classes. Moreover, many schools, especially the government ones in the villages and small towns do not have the means and skill to conduct such classes. But we have to somehow manage within those limitations and should endeavour to improve upon them at the earliest.

    I agree that there is no alternative as on date to online learning. But the efforts should be sincere. India is far behind many other countries in this aspect. Many schools in villages are not having the facilities and also the students are also not having smartphones. Many of the parents don't have the capability of providing wifi in the house by spending Rs1000/- a month. So we have to see how these problems will be sorted out and we go on with this idea of online classes.
    In Hyderabad, many private schools are trying to make money by starting these online classes. Some playschools are telling that they will have online classes for the parents of kids. Many schools are asking for classes to 1st class and 2nd class students also. This is a way of making money.
