Abstract

Online class for school students is the new concept or model of learning that we hear in the recent past from the people, experts, schools and in medias. School education is one of the majorly affected sectors due to COVID-19 pandemic. In this paper, we discuss the root cause for the online digital class for the school students and explore the need for this study. We attempted to know the opinion of the parents such as the willingness to the online course, outcome of the online class, effects in the student’s mental and physical health due to online class, parents financial ability and time in providing digital equipment and the infrastructure requirement for the online class. We also discuss in detail various interconnected factors associated with the online class for making it effective one. In the end, we give some recommendations for better learning during COVID-19 with less impact to the students mental and physical health.
