It was a time of great uncertainty and trouble globally due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Countries across the world had shut down everything except essential services to prevent the Coronavirus from spreading, including schools and colleges.
This resulted in students, teachers, and administrative staff having to adapt to these new conditions and the state of learning. It was then, Epistemo adapted to the “new normal” by setting up virtual classrooms for all of their students.
These virtual classrooms used the latest technology to continuously engage students and make learning interactive and fun. The students enjoyed the new virtual classroom by experiencing increasingly personalized education.
Attendance by students in virtual classrooms was over 95% and showed no sign of decreasing. The virtual classrooms provided students with unlimited access to everything necessary for the course, thereby facilitating active learning.
Students could also learn with a great deal of flexibility and at their own pace. Interacting digitally with their peers and teachers made for an in-depth learning process. During interactive virtual classrooms, students could listen to the teacher through online classes, respond to questions, be heard by the rest of the participants, and write on the whiteboard. Teachers too adapted to and enjoyed the virtual classroom at Epistemo. They used the very latest in technology to deliver fun, engaging, and interactive lessons to their students. Teachers could schedule classes at their and their students’ convenience, thereby ensuring that everyone was in the right frame of mind to learn effectively.
Epistemo understood that learning should be both interesting and challenging, and their virtual classrooms addressed these needs completely. Parents too were relieved that Epistemo had begun virtual classes, as this ensured that learning was not interrupted for students.
Learning in virtual classrooms also ensured that Epistemo and its teachers and students were not at the mercy of the global pandemic condition. They ensured that their online classes and online technology were designed keeping in mind the unique needs of their students as well as teachers. Then, online learning was personal, interactive, and flexible.
Also, learning through virtual classrooms delivered a more effective learning experience because of the short, interactive modules that could be paused and repeated, if needed. Students could also access and revisit the lessons several times to enhance their learning.
This form of learning was called micro-learning, which helped students find what they needed to learn, quickly. Students could also connect better with their teachers by posting comments and questions in real time, using technology. All in all, a virtual classroom back then allowed students to understand topics on their terms and many devices.
At Epistemo, they encouraged their students to continue their learning at their own pace and in their style despite those difficult circumstances. In this way, they ensured their progress and success…always!
