E-learning helped some students in India during flood

by R. Sujatha and Gayathree Ganesan, the Hindu

Access to the Internet and web-based learning ensured that students in some private schools did not miss schoolwork even during the extended holiday due to the recent rain and the ensuing flood. Some schools have installed software or signed into popular e-learning platforms to provide homework and assignments. A teacher in Omega, a private school in Kolapakkam, which is still cleaning up the mess left by the flood, said some teachers had sent online assignments to students. “But it depended on accessibility,” the teacher, who did not want to be named, said. Chettinad Vidhyashram sent assignments through Yokibu. “We concentrated on students appearing for the board exams. We sent SMS alerts when we mailed assignments students. But, only those who had power supply benefited. Children in less affected areas shared hard copies of the assignments with their friends in flood-affected places,” said Principal S. Amudha Lakshmi.
