REMOTE EDUCATION IN THE TIMES OF COVID-19 AND THE FUTURE OF E-LEARNING

Mustabshira Siddiqui

Abstract


Digitalization, globalization, and online learning have revolutionized the educational scenario. It was not long ago when remote learning, which essentially means learning without being physically present in the boundaries of an educational institution, was condemned and deemed "ineffective". However, the spread of the deadly COVID-19 virus has forced students and teachers to adopt remote learning, causing unprecedented changes in the learning process. Based on the recent switch to remote learning, it is safe to say that not only remote education ensures better reach and lifelong learning, but it is also learner-oriented, flexible, convenient, economical, and saves a lot of time and resources. The need of the hour is to make remote learning available to everyone, by broadcasting lessons on television, radio, social media, YouTube, distributing informative books, and attention-grabbing pamphlets. Keeping in mind the benefits and freedom that come with remote education, we can presume that remote education is here to stay. The present paper will analyze the educational scenario during COVID-19, andwill also discuss the future of E-learning as a brighter prospect for students around the world.  It will attempt to provide insights into the various aspects of remote learning through the analysis of the results ofan online survey, which was conducted on seventeen students from different countries all over the globe. The participants shared their views and experiences regarding the remote learning experiences during Covid-19.

Keywords: Education during Covid-19, future of e-learning, remote learning as an effective tool to promote worldwide education and literacy.
