Online Education in India : Expectations and Concerns

Online Education in India

Welcome to Online education in India is a topic that needs to be discussed in a big way.  While giving new hope, there are also big concerns related to this sector.  We can understand the seriousness of this issue when we discuss the problems that can arise if such a situation continues.


The education sector is an area that needs to embrace the broader concepts enshrined in the Constitution such as democracy, secularism, social justice, equality and equality of opportunity.  While the general principle is that students should become the future promises of society, the running of the education process can lead to discussions.  Concerns about whether satisfactory and accurate interventions will be condensed in such areas of education transfer, and the extent to which online classes will affect future large-scale dissemination of knowledge, can be examined.

Education in India: Need to worry

The government intends to use online education as an alternative system with the aim of advancing educational activities at this juncture where formal and formal mergers are not possible.  But it has not been fully supported or embraced by the general public, which includes a large percentage of teachers, students and parents.  Generally everyone thinks that an alternative system is only a temporary or temporary way out.  But in this context of Covid's excesses, it is encouraging that the government's thought-provoking alternative system of education should be conducted in a way that is possible without restraint.  This partial and temporary learning method can continue to be adopted if the post-Covid background is far-fetched.  Not only physical education institutions but even religious institutions have been locked down and studies have taken off online.  Even in the case of such an alternative system, the concerns reflected in it are not insignificant.  Actually learning has its own limitations when it comes to stepping into online fields.

In the online world where vast systems are being formed, the learning possibilities are huge.  Even in the pre-Covid era, most institutions had classes with the help of the Internet.  As this learning process took shape in the classrooms, so did the smart classrooms, through which video, audio, test, and graphics presentations took place.  But that has changed, and today there are only a handful of online classes in homes.  The educational process is becoming a virtual world with teachers who have not yet taught in the online field and students who have not yet listened to online classes or are unfamiliar.  However, within a week, teachers and students were able to take over the process.  Will education continue like this ..?  What is the need for all schools now ..?  The biggest concern is the question that arises.  There are many who think that if this method continues, future progress will not be reflected in the students.  Discussions need to be taken seriously. If this online method continues, the difference between the old generation and the new generation will be very wide.

Formal education in India began with the gurukula system.  In the course of its development, places like Takshashila and Nalanda became universities in the vast task of many gurus staying in one place and mastering each student in each subject.  It later gave the Indian subcontinent a great period of knowledge, research and innovative thinking.  The exchange of knowledge between students and teachers laid the foundation for the world's intellectual movement.  Only through the study of a classroom is it possible to develop the phenomenon of socialization and stimulate students' cognitive learning.

In this case, online education is a matter of concern.  Schools are a part of society.  It is through the group activities and discussions sitting here that students actually get the lessons of facing a community.  What is the problem with online class ..? But it is not just about imparting textbooks and walking in educational institutions.  On the contrary, it is a platform for time setting, discipline, interaction and exchange of ideas. It will not be available through this so-called online education ....!  The psychological connection between the student and the teacher is lost, and when an activity class is suggested, it is not even possible to know if the student is doing it himself or if there is interference from others.  Here the quality of the student goes unnoticed.  In the future, the education sector will face a major crisis.  Here, when the concerns are formed in different ways, the situation can only be understood and reconciled.  Many financially backward students relied on school lunches for their health and for a time without starvation.  But when this situation makes it inappropriate and difficult for them, a healthy student community is sure to be lost.  With the enablement of online study, it can be a great relief if the authorities provide each student with the lunch they deserve.  Everyone should proceed with care. It is healthy and desirable.  Even if future studies are at stake, caution is in order, thinking that contextual combinations can be detrimental to one's health.

Online Education in India: Challenges

There is a complex problem that only those with smartphones and data connections can get an education.  Internet connection is a problem here, and for many, the learning possibilities are ruined when homes without even a television are in place.  According to UNESCO, the education of more than 150 crore people has been disrupted by Kovid.  One-fifth of it is in India.  While studying at universities and other professional colleges, the Wi-Fi system existed when online possibilities became necessary.  But now that learning has shifted to homes and online is essential, internet connection is no longer an option.  The main challenge facing online education is probably the inability to transform the server into a digitalized society.  Then it is imperative to look at all-inclusive development plans.  The Dalit student who committed suicide due to lack of smart phone and TV needs to take steps to prevent a recurrence here., a technology platform for schoolchildren across the country, has found that financially disadvantaged students will be expelled if the lock dawn continues.  Therefore, the authorities need to move towards the full reality of being a digitally authenticated country.  "Samagra Shiksha Kerala" (SSK) under the Department of Public Instruction reports that there are more than two and a half lakh students in our state who do not actually have access to online study.  The majority of children are from poor backgrounds.  For some, even having a computer or the Internet at home is not enough for their parents to use.  Teachers, local government bodies, and political leaders have taken the initiative to facilitate television for students who do not currently have access to online classes, and it is not clear how effective and successful these will be when learning arrangements are made for classes such as library and public spaces.  But such an online education system cannot be ruled out in this situation.

Another challenge is that Covid was able to expose the falsehoods of the claims that are being touted as a digital India.  Internet speed testing company "Ukla" conducted a test globally last month.  India's position is far behind.  India ranks 130th out of 141 countries in mobile internet speed testing.  Broadband Speed India is ranked 71st out of 176 countries in the world.  Moreover, the reality is that it took a cowardly time to expose the country lagging behind in digital availability, connectivity, infrastructure and speed.  Despite all the facilities available for online learning, India's current lack of growth poses a serious challenge to online education.

Online Education in India: Possibilities and Expectations

By the time of Covid, millions of people had already taken to education online.  Even if seminars become webinars due to the pressure of the situation, one can take comfort in the existence of such projects.  In fact, online classes and their educational methods are a fact of life, not just now.  You can get acquainted with many online universities and certificate courses that started years ago.  The "Massive Open Online Courses" (MOOCs) offer a wide range of higher learning opportunities and other areas of education online.  These are just some of the goal setting shareware that you can use in your online education.  In addition, the course offered by individual teachers and other major employee-led certificate courses such as "Niposh" and "Osha" make online education more relevant.  New experiments in educational sensitization are advancing through the use of new media to overcome the formal educational possibilities and structural limitations.

There is a significant reduction in the number of students eligible for higher education after Plus Two.  Fewer than thirty percent are engaged in higher education, such as degrees.  In Kerala, a very small percentage of these higher education attainments have been recorded.  India's "gross enrollment ratio" lags far behind.  Kerala lags far behind the world percentage.  This is where the potential of digital and online education comes into play.  Digital studies are one of the ways in which this can be done.  It is hoped that in the age of neo-liberalization, where higher education will become a business, the government will fulfill its responsibilities. 


 Let's see how much the NDA government promises to accept the missions and projects that will help the study.  Future online studies will lead not only to the financial security of universities and those receiving distance education, but also to higher thinking. Therefore, this education needs to be utilized in the present context.  Education alone is inappropriate to turn a blind eye to changes over time.  The crisis is not just in the education sector but in all sectors like health, employment, hotel and retail.  Online possibilities cannot be ruled out at such stages.  But the post-Covid community must also wait to achieve digital access with equality.
