Online Classes

April 17, 2022

The COVID-19 has resulted in schools shut all across the world. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the distinctive rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms.

ESS has been one of the first schools to introduce online classes to the students and has been successfully conducting digital learning from April 2020. This sudden shift away from the classroom had definitely been challenging for both the students and teachers but the adoption of online learning has been incredibly effective in this case. The two platforms that have been used by the teachers to conduct the virtual classes are the Zoom videoconferencing tool for the synchronous delivery of the content and Google Classroom for delivering the educational content extensively as the Learning Management System (LMS). The progress and results of each of the students are circulated through Class Tune.

Ground Rules are set by the ESS authority to cut down the interruption in conducting the classes and maximize the learning and participation in the online classes.

There are, however, challenges to overcome. Some students without reliable internet access and gadget malfunction might struggle to participate in digital learning but this has been handled efficiently by the ESS authority and teachers. Special care as well as attention is always a virtue of ESS; hence, the students missing out on any class and/or examinations have been assisted with backup lectures, documents and additional help from the teachers.
