This step is taken for the safeguard of the students.what are education mode and opportunities.
Online learning/ E-learing and opportunities;

The online classes gives a lot of opportunities for students. Here we discuss the opportunities as well as the cons of online classes. The whole world switched to online learning because the only way to save the academic year.The online classes is the big opportunity to overcome the effects of post Covid-19 pandemic on education sector .The online classes provide opportunities of recorded (video, audio) lecture, voice notes which help students those not taking online class.

It’s very helpful for students .In online education, its easy for students to take review of the lecture. The students can review words of the teacher instantly, also review audio lecture or video lecture.

You also get feedback of your instructor .You also discussed any problem with your teacher in online class or on a whatsapp message.The online learning have a lot of benefits and opportunities but online learning also have create problems for students. In Online classes students can’t interact with teacher face to face . Online learning typically required amount of reading and assignment. It’s a plenty of work in online learning. The experience of me while taking online some time I am unable to connect the zoom meeting due to the lack of internet signal. The online learning can cause social isolation because students not interact with the class fellow’s or lack of human communication can leads several problems for students. Also it’s difficult to manage time. In Pakistan the HEC asked universities to shift online classes without realize the results. In Pakistan there are some areas where have not internet facility, Online education become challenge for hundreds of thousands students. Most of university students belongs to the areas like FATA and Gilgit Bultistan. Because of this these students faces the connectivity issues due to this they are unable to take online lectures. The issue of online classes has not come from students alone, it’s also new for teachers in Pakistan .For online mode required more skill sometimes most faculty members did not want. The online classes also challenging for teachers, because it’s a first experience not only for students but also for teachers.
