Online Learning in a Post-Covid Environment
We are a group of JC educators who switched to online tuition classes in view of the Covid-19 disruptions. Results were highly encouraging. Students gave positive feedback on learning through our online platforms. Students found video recordings useful and were able to review recordings at their own pace. Students who were previously less vocal during physical classes were also observed to ask more questions through Zoom’s chat function or via WhatsApp during and after the session. This allowed their doubts to be promptly addressed.
More importantly, with time saved commuting to our centre for lessons, students were willing and able to commit to additional classes to prepare them for upcoming assessments. This allowed us more time to run through students’ queries and to drill and fine-tune answering techniques to help students stay ahead. We are of the view that these benefits remain tangible and significant even in a post-Covid environment. Hence, making additional weekly lessons (at no extra charge) a key feature of our subject offerings, we are offering pure online lessons in 2021.
