Digital Education In The Days of Pandemic

Written By Atif Khan

Before the Corona virus, I have planned my study schedule and the final project of my degree and I had a clear sight of what I am going to do. But suddenly the pandemonium due to Corona broke out and my plan buried somewhere in the panic created due to Corona virus. It was not expected that educational institutions would move from in-person classes to online classes for the rest of the academic year. I like many other students were confused about studies, future, classroom etc.

I was in the 3rd semester of My Degree and had basic digital facilities to attend online classes. I remember the day of my first online class and it was full of confusions and worries. Some of my classmates didn’t know much about the internet or applications like zoom and Google meet. Some belong to rural areas where there was neither PTCL internet nor 3G covered area. But in the first two weeks, all of them managed to attend online classes.

Later I came to know that in my class, students are blessed to have basic facilities but there are many other in universities who were doing jobs to bear study expenses but they had lost their jobs due to Corona and could not afford to stay in Lahore. Some of them had laptops but no internet facility and many of them had no laptops.

The world was shocked when a minor girl of 14 from Kerala India suicide. The reason behind suicide was that her classmates were attending online classes but she was unable to do so because her father was a daily wager and he could not provide her with the internet facility. There are many likewise stories where students are facing the same issues and are crushed under the burden of stress and depression.

It is said that this pandemic may end in next 4 to 6 months and until that Universities have to go with online classes. And if it happens the poor class will continue to suffer and their rights will continue to be compromised.

“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
