GIBS College Fights COVID-19 Pandemic by Introducing GIBS By Your Side Scholarship Programme
The infamous Coronavirus has clouded the regularity, normalcy of the world and has brought everything to a halt. While people across the globe are fighting the pandemic to keep their spirits high, the economic setback has pulled back their willpower to a certain extent. Before December 2019, the virus that had no existence had taken the entire humankind by storm in just 4-5 months.
In India, COVID-19 has infected more than 15 thousand in less than 2 months and has sent the country into lockdown. Not just India most countries are fighting the same battle by staying in their respective homes. Although social distancing and lockdowns are essential considering the current scenario, one thing can’t be denied is that the industries, education sector, etc. have taken a bad hit.
Around mid-March, more than 70 countries announced school and college closures, leading to the postponement of exams, and a smaller number of applicants due to uncertainty of economic support, and other such things. The closedown of educational institutions has impacted the studies of millions of students pursuing higher education in India and across the globe.
Apart from having an adverse effect on the curriculum of 99% of students globally, the Coronavirus has people worrying about economic aspects like student debt, housing, etc. as well.
Edu-tech Easing the Process of Learning
But while these were some of the problems being faced by the students and the college authorities, they are gradually finding their way back again, courtesy of digital learning. Not compromising on the safety of the students and the staff, several colleges have shifted to digital mediums and educating students virtually with the help of recorded classes, webinars, online lectures, live discussions, and other similar things that have been helping students fill the gap of learning.
This global pandemic may have created social limitations, but the edu-tech industry has leaped to cross that barrier in the way of learning. The advancement of technology again came to the rescue and has brought a huge pedagogical change in the education sector. Things are being worked out so that the interruptions in the students’ learning can be minimized.
