IntroductionToday's newest and most popular kind of distance education is online learning. It has had a huge impact on postsecondary education over the previous decade, and because of the COVID-19 epidemic, there is no alternative option for learning. Despite the fact that the process has been going on for over a year, there is still no sign of normalization. Until then, the status quo remains. Do you think that the present education system makes the beneficiaries happy and healthy?
Some students' understanding of online education is like this. When they take courses instead of in a traditional classroom, they are referred to as online learners. If their schedule makes it difficult to attend class, if they want to learn from home, or if the campus is too far away from their home. They are unable to study using traditional methods such as attending school or college and completing offline assignments, midterm tests, and final exams. They are forced to do online learning because of the epidemic, whether they like it or not.
- They can access a wider range of programs, enhance their technical skills, and learn in a more comfortable atmosphere through online learning. They may get a lot of knowledge outside of their usual classes thanks to the range of programs available through online learning, such as digital scrapbooking and Sketch Master, etc. If they attend the usual class, they may only have a few opportunities or may not be able to receive them at all. However, if they do online learning, people may experience disruption from social media, but they may still learn a lot of new topics that they didn't know previously.
- Another benefit of online learning is that it improves their technical skills. This implies that users learn from their online courses, such as how to create and share documents, how to combine audio or video resources into assignments, how to complete online tests, and so on.
- They can accomplish the assignment or online learning anywhere they like and they don't have to sit in a specific position; they may relax while lying in bed or go to a cafeteria, etc. If they learn at school or college, it will be more enjoyable and energizing because they will be able to meet their friends and new people, and there will be a teacher present constantly to answer their inquiries, on the grounds that the genuine type of learning is a place where there is the inclusion of individuals sharing and receiving information immediately.
As a consequence, online learning is more convenient than conventional learning, yet there are some factors that make traditional learning superior to online learning. Their main concern is their employability after the successful completion of their online studies.
When the entire global education system transitioned to online instruction in March 2020, parents played an important role in assisting children in understanding how to continue studying, when and how not to practice digital answers, and how to guide them in this endeavor.
During the COVID-19 epidemic, more than 67 percent of educational institutions throughout the world were shut down, and instruction was shifted to distance learning. Parents of the pupils, who were forced to become home schoolers in a matter of days with no prior training, played a significant part in this situation. Although parental participation was earlier assessed as vital but oftentimes inadequate, today, parents are the ones who educate their children in all possible ways, comparable to teachers, in addition to their office and home work.
Parents must help their children deal with psychological issues triggered by their incapacity to visit their friends. Fathers and mothers normally expect them to do fine in school, be copiously present in life, be diligent and driven, and succeed in building a sense of success in life, but these maternal wishes are typically linked to the educational scheme.
Students' learning outcomes are heavily influenced by their parents' ability to assist them, which is related to parents' basic familiarity with many topics as well as their capacity to handle digital tools and impart them to their children. This learning prospect is also contingent on the socioeconomic circumstances of families, namely whether or not children might be supplied with digital tools to reach course materials from home.
Many parents' perceptions
- Teachers attempt to plan lessons on online communication platforms without taking into account the availability of supporting resources. Many families share devices, hence there may be times when scholars are unable to participate in parallel studying since their brothers/sisters are taking online classes at the same time.
- Though digital and IT-based education is creative, children who do not have access to digital devices may face social isolation. This is consistent with many parents' view that online learning is preferable for pupils whose parents can offer the required technology and discrete help during the learning period.
- Simultaneously, parents commonly reported that the projects allocated by instructors were so tough that their children could not have accomplished them without parental aid.
- When COVID pushed their children to switch to online learning, parents became proxy instructors, and many of these individuals are suffering increased anxiety. As a result, these parents were more likely to suffer from melancholy, sleep problems, and a lack of enthusiasm or joy in doing activities.
- Parents in all socioeconomic groups reported increased levels of emotional anguish, independent of family income or the number of days since school had been out.
Students must rely on some type of distant learning for the foreseeable future, but parents may endure prolonged times of high stress and mental health problems. During the epidemic, addressing parents' emotional needs has been critical for pupils' achievement.
In my opinion, because students are getting along with online education to the best of their abilities, even if they miss the joy of being with friends, schools and colleges do not need to be reopened immediately until the situation stabilizes, but institution authorities and teachers should work to strengthen relationships with parents as the pandemic continues. Educators can perform continuous check-ins to assess how families are functioning and whether more academic or social-emotional services are required. Accidents do not just happen; they are caused.
