Only 36% Of Students Availing Online Learning Options Amid School Closures Due Co Covid-19: Reports
Having surveyed over 2000 students in India, Brainly found that while 63 per cent of the students have an off from school.
The widespread COVID-19 or novel Coronavirus contagion has led to large scale school closures in India and the rest of the world. Brainly, the online learning community for students, parents, and teachers, conducted a survey to find out the impact of this unusual situation on learning and education.
Having surveyed over 2000 students in India, Brainly found that while 63 per cent of the students have an off from school, only 36 per cent of them are receiving online education while at home as of 17th March. The survey also found that although 26 per cent of the respondents are excited to spend this time with friends and family, almost 34 per cent of the students are bored at home during this break.
Speaking on the survey, Michał Borkowski, Co-founder, and CEO, Brainly, said, “While numerous schools in the country have tied up with ed-tech platforms to offer online learning to students, our survey findings indicate that a major chunk of them have not made such associations yet. We expect more schools and teachers to follow this path however and introduce online learning in the upcoming days. This is what we are already observing in other countries. Students and parents seeking assistance for their academic queries are turning to online learning platforms, such as Brainly, where they can get help with learning already.”
