Abstract

Corona Virus pandemic also known as COVID-19 has adversely affected the billions of people across the globe. There is very little positive to look into this crisis. Thousands of people have lost their lives, millions are infected, millions of people are going to lose their jobs, daily wage laborers and poor’s are fighting for the essentials, small scale industries are fighting for the survival, economies are on the verge of collapse and economists are fearing the greater crisis than the global financial crisis of the 2000s and the great depression of 1930s combined. But there is hope, it has some positives as it has united the people and the economies and it is expected that the world economy will recover from this pandemic and will become stronger. It has provided great hope for the education sector as most of the educational institutes around the world have shifted to online learning and teaching and they are doing quite well. The present study considers this as an opportunity for educational institutions to learn from this situation and develop a learning and teaching model for the future generation. The study proposes a Futuristic cloud-based educational model that will be unaffected by the crisis such as a pandemic, war, decreasing student number enrolment, etc.
