When the whole globe is fighting with destructive COVID-19, it becomes difficult to continue life activities. In this difficult time, educational institutes are highly affected by the pandemic. According to UNESCO, a very high ratio of around 1.5 billion students and youngsters are affected by it. In the measures to tackle COVID-19, most of the educational institutes are shifted to Distance Learning mode.
Distance learning is used as an alternative but with a few advantages, there are several problems associated with it. Let’s have a look concisely at the general issues:
Students find distance learning less engaging than that of conventional methodology. The reasons behind this are a lack of live communication and comprehensive demonstration.
More mess and interruption
Distance learning needs self-disciplined and eager students or it will be a great mess the other way round. The high-tech knowledge of unruly and naughty students not only creates trouble for them but also others.
It becomes difficult for instructors to judge the performance of students virtually. It remains somehow unfair.
On the days of poor connectivity and server issues, not all students can able to reach out to their online classes. This not only breaks their tempo but also causes several questions and confusion.
These are the general issues but if we look at the positive side, we came to know some wondrous facts. Here we have some of the relevant studies and researches for you.
One of the researchers at Britain’s open university claims that opting distance learning system not only affects the consumption of energy but the pollution factors also get influenced by it. The energy shift is highly considered as its consumption drop down to 90%. The carbon dioxide release level also gets lower to approximately 85%, which will eventually help in creating a clean and green environment.
One more study that has been done at IBM by practical implementation gives us sound satisfaction. The first launch the distance learning mode and then conclude the results. The conclusion shows that in the e-learning system, participants get 5 times more knowledge than that from the conventional way at the same time. This will not only increase productivity but will also save time.
The institutes and companies can save a large capital after switching to distance learning mode. It saves the cost of both users and providers. Moreover, the expenses of a hostel, traveling, equipment and billings just vanish. According to Dave Evans, IBM saved a big amount after switching to e-learning of up to $200 million.
If you are about to change your mind and want to resume academic activities, we are providing the best solutions. We go through the minor but worthy factors that need attention while opting for any system.
Intelgency is one of our associated projects with a distance learning system. The novelties and exceptions are what make it stand out from the crowd.
Some of the novel features of intelgency are:Four distinctive panels are assigned to each; the students, teachers, parents, and admin.
Customized mini-games during the lecture to increase the interest of the student and catch their attention.
Data analysis tools for progress evaluation and attendance. This will allow parents to have a quick check on their children.
The live gallery for diagrams and figures will help the students in better understanding. Relevant videos can also be added.
Some courses need a whiteboard for complete demonstration, we incorporated a whiteboard in the system for comprehensive and demonstrative learning.
Machine learning, Artificial intelligence, and Image processing are employed to optimize the environment for having the best possible results.
