A Student’s Perspective of Online Learning

Since schools have closed again due to lockdown, teachers have continued their teaching online. It’s a stressful time for teachers and students but schools will remain closed until further notice, we do most of our classes on teams and the classes we don’t do on teams we send work through Edmodo.

Even though it is very different from actually going to school our timetable is the same. Classes start at 8:55 and will last between 30 to 40 minutes. You must have your camera on and appropriate clothing and message your tutor, teacher or year head if you have any difficulties.

I find online learning a little more difficult than actually being in the classroom. Then on other occasions I find it easier, for example you have time to do assignments and other work without it piling up.

Online learning can be different for everyone, sometimes it’s hard to find a quiet place to learn and you would just rather be in school. Some people might like online learning because you are at home and find it less stressful. Remember you can message your tutor or year head if you are having a hard time with online work.
