My Opinion on Virtual Classes, Share Yours Too!
Due to the Corona virus pandemic last year, everything changed. From the political sector to business cycle and to the marketing aspect there was a strategic change. Inflation on food stuffs and every other man necessity.
Schools finally resumed and everyone was happy to see their friends and jolly again. But then again, this thing called virtual class came in. No physical classes, just you and your phone.
Most Nigerian institutions were alien to virtual classes up until the break out of coronavirus. Physical meetings became accompanied with the use of face masks, hand sanitizers and social distancing.
Actually, virtual classes are a bit easier and stress-free but come with a cost- heavy data usage. Things became so different, materials here and there with voice notes on Google classroom and Telegram.
For my school, classes were based on the kind of lecturers, departments and how they feel they can interact well with their students. By all means, there were restrictions to things like physical contact with lecturer and ability to express opinions well with questions. What more, not all students could adjust to that kind of learning style.
If you ask me, in my own opinion, I’d say virtual class in its entirety was something new and interesting for me. What about you? Please share your experience as a Nigerian institution on the virtual class experience in the comment section.
