Students exam preparation and online classes

Students exam preparation and online classes

Online classes are not ideal in any situation as learning can be best monitored by the teacher in person but the Virtual Schooling that I have had for the past few days has been very helpful and productive. I liked that there were minimal technical errors in the classes I have had so far and they have run smoothly. The teachers have been able to engage the students and make the classes interesting like the business management or the Spanish class I’ve had. The classes have also been content-heavy at times like the math class or the economics class – but that’s fine. During these classes, the teachers shared their screens and answered our questions in real-time. It was comparable to learning in person. Overall the classes have been at a very high standard so far. – Akshanth, DP1

For the past week, I have been attending Virtual Schooling. These classes have ensured that our learning goes uninterrupted regardless of the current circumstances, and have been nothing short of informative and helpful. Our teachers have mimicked the classroom environment to a large extent with various activities, discussions, debates, and so on. They have also incorporated the elements of conducting classes online, such as recording classes and making use of screen-sharing, in order to make each minute of the class interesting and useful. The teachers continue to be extremely approachable, answering any doubts we may have just as they would do in normal classes. They are open and receptive to any feedback we may have about the Virtual classes, continually making the learning environment a comfortable one. – Simran, DP1

Due to the impending threat posed by the Covid-19 virus to the health and well being of students, our school Oakridge international Bangalore decided to take cautionary precautions in order to fight the spread of the disease. During this period of social isolation, our school started Virtual Schooling as a method to keep normal academic functions running. Although at first, I had my reservations about Virtual Schooling, it happened to exceed my expectations. The online classes, especially in the subjects I take which are Business Management, Economics, Maths, Hindi, Computer Science and English, are executed very well by the school. Every class is recorded for the reference of students. We had some difficulties in subjects like Hindi and Maths in terms of not being able to write it online, but overall classes are amazing for students, even during emergencies like these. – Sashwath, DP1
