With the current pandemic situation and lockdown, educational institutions are having to cope with an unexpected situation, especially in India, during annual exam time, and all the schedules have been thrown out of gear. As institutions look for ways to minimize disruption to children’s curriculum and extending the school year into the vacations, teachers at schools across the country are looking for ways to teach children who are forced to stay at home. There has never been a more urgent need for good online/eLearning/LMS applications which could be a substitute for classroom learning. Teachers and parents are bracing for massive experiments in remote learning and education.
Learning management system (LMS) addresses couple of scenarios: one in which a school/colleges closes temporarily and have the facility to provide alternate solution for online learning, and the other being having a permanent online solution as a parallel learning opportunity. Education is a lot more effective when it’s “sought” than when it’s “taught”. A fantastic opportunity for Universities & Schools to embrace online education and catch up on the technical infrastructure debt.
Fitch Ratings expects reliance on online learning to grow in the next few months, adding to an expected increase in online education over the long term. Enrollment during campus shutdowns could decline at institutions without strong online learning platforms.
For company/business/corporate, such adversity/challenges gives rise to new avenues. When people start getting locked down, in different geographies, many of us will be drawn towards streaming entertainment, education and similar such services. It is an excellent opportunity for us to sharpen the saw, hone our skills and upskill.
