Experiencing Virtual Education
This is a time of great uncertainty and trouble globally due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Countries across the world are shutting down everything except essential services to prevent the Coronavirus from spreading. These “lockdowns” include schools and colleges.
This has resulted in students, teachers and administrative staff having to adapt to these new conditions and new state of learning. We, at Epistemo, have adapted to the “new normal when it comes to teaching and learning by setting up virtual classrooms for all of our students.
These virtual classrooms use the latest in technology to continuously engage our students and make learning interactive and fun. Our students are enjoying the new virtual classroom by experiencing education that is increasingly personalized.
Attendance by students to our virtual classrooms is over 95% and shows no sign of decreasing. Our virtual classrooms provide our students with unlimited access to everything necessary for the course, thereby facilitating active learning.
Students can also learn with a great deal of flexibility and at their own pace. Interacting digitally with their peers and teachers makes for an in-depth learning process. During our interactive virtual classrooms, students can listen to the teacher through online classes, respond to questions, be heard by the rest of the participants, and can write on the whiteboard.
Teachers too, are adapting to and enjoying the virtual classroom at Epistemo. They are using the very latest in technology to deliver fun, engaging, and interactive lessons to their students. Teachers can schedule classes as per their and their students’ convenience, thereby ensuring that everyone is in the right frame of mind to learn effectively.
We, at Epistemo, understand that learning should be both interesting and challenging and our virtual classrooms address these needs completely. Parents too, are relieved that Epistemo has begun virtual classes, as this ensures that learning is not interrupted for students.
Learning in a virtual classrooms also ensures that Epistemo and its teachers and students are not at the mercy of the global pandemic condition. We have ensured that our online classes and our online technology have been designed keeping in mind the unique needs of our students as well as teachers. In fact, now, online learning is personal, interactive, and flexible.
Also, learning through virtual classrooms delivers a more effective learning experience, because of the short, interactive modules that can be paused and repeated, if needed. Students can also access and revisit the lessons several times to enhance their learning.
This form of learning is called micro learning, which helps students find what they need to learn, quickly. Students can also connect better with their teachers by posting comments and questions in real time, using technology. All in all, a virtual classroom allows students to understand topics on their own terms and on many devices.
At Epistemo, we encourage our students to continue their learning at their own pace and in their own style despite these difficult circumstances. In this way, we ensure their progress and success…always!
