Online Classes are Here To Stay
This last year put us through the mental, physical and emotional test. We had to set a pause button on the fast, ever-moving life of ours. Students were among the worst affected, and to ensure they were still learning during the pandemic, many schools quickly moved online. The struggle was harder for many NGOs or Affordable schools who lacked the required resources for moving online and hence hoped that the physical classes would open up soon.
Now that the schools are slowly being allowed to open up, the question for most schools and Ed-tech organizations is: Will Online classrooms survive post covid?
The short answer is Yes. Let me explain.
Of the 15 lakh schools in India, about 2.5 lakh are Affordable Private Schools. There are also many NGO schools operating in the country.
Over the years, we have seen enormous growth in Affordable Private School. These schools are perceived by the parents as being of a better standard than government schools and only slightly lower than elite private schools. Because these schools are “affordable”, they are faced with certain challenges.
Because of their reasonable fees structure, schools constantly are under financial pressure
Often, they’re unable to find high-quality teachers because of the location they operate in or because of their salary paying capacity
And many are sceptical about adapting to the new technology because either it’s too costly for their size or because of the added learning burden it’ll bring.
This only means that the widespread solutions present in the market could not solve their problems, not that technology can’t solve them.
In order to ensure high-quality teachers, despite their location and financial capacity, online education would still remain the best bet for them. Also, technology is the only way to track student performance, school data, over the long term and ensure that gaps are better visible so that corrective actions can be taken accordingly. And Ed-tech solutions that help them manage their curriculum and student performance only need to be simpler and cheaper enough so that it removes the inhibitions that the teachers using them might have.
Challenges faced by Affordable Private School.
This calls for a workable, comprehensive and easy-to-use solution for not only managing school and student performance but also conducting online classes. allLearn is one such school management platform that is built specifically with NGO and Affordable private schools in mind. Some things that make it stand out are:
The platform is available on WhatsApp.
Works with any curriculum.
It’s available in vernacular languages, starting with Hindi.
The new WhatsApp feature from allLearn is very simple, powerful, and allows teachers to do their desired task quickly. They can create instant live class, online tests and assignments, track students’ performance and share with parents. allLearn’s WhatsApp service can also be used by parents to check their child’s performance, pay fee, and students can use it to see their data and start practice tests quickly.
With such tools at their disposal, schools could not provide a better service to the students and parents but also make use of online sessions to connect with high-quality teachers no matter where they are, eventually leading to better-educated students.
