8 Challenges that learners experience when using online classes

The directives of the lockdown experienced in most of the countries in the world has interfered with the school calendar. To pasue Education, this has made a good number of students find refuge in online classes.

Learners taking an online class.

However this has not been always easy as there are a lot of challenges that learners go through during their online lessons. Some of these challenges are:

  • Lack of internet connection in rural areas.
  • Some parents are not able to meet the extra expenses that come with internet such as paying for home fibre network or buying of bundles.
  • There is disruption when lessons are going on such as; poor internet signals, blackouts due to power failure or lack of a quiet place as classes takes place in the houses where other members are going on with their duties causing background noise and interfering with the learners concentration.
  • Computer illiteracy. Using computers for online classes needs one to have some skills. While this should be the case, some learners face some challenges when connecting to class or when needed to follow the lesson smoothly.
  • Long hours on the screen. When learners are attending their classes, they are expected to be glued to the screen for long hours as all lessons are being taught through computers. If not using a computer, the students is forced to use a mobile phone which makes them struggle a lot reading and navigating to different pages as they take notes from the teacher. In any way, online lessons are causing stress and most of students who were not used to this style of learning have complained of headache and eye problems.
  • They are not able to participate fully like in a normal class. Audio and connection issues contribute to this.
  • The teacher might not be able to cater for slow learners. After online class, the learner has no other chance to engage with the teacher for the concept that was not well understood.
  • Ignorance of some of the parents who don’t care whether the child is learning or not. Technology to them is a bother and should not interfere with their busy schedule. In such a scenario,the learner is disadvantaged.

These challenges are making life difficult to both the child and the parents.

Nothing comes on silver platter – Ciscas

It is the nature of human to appreciate success when it knocks. Though somebody said...opportunity strikes only once…..it is everyone’s desire to enjoy it now and then, but mostly, it isn’t just a walk in the park. I loved a statement from one of the blogs I read recently that stated...if it was easy, everybody would be in it…this challenged me if not to inspire. Now I know that having tried is already an achievement. What you need is persistence as per this 10 Ways.. and also see this video on how to reach to your destiny

Is it true that money earned through hard ways is ‘sweeter’ than what you never struggled for?… I am not sure on this… Sometimes life is a bit unfair. One may work so hard yet success is negligible. However, that should not discourage one to move on. You never know what tomorrow has in store. So, keep moving as long as you don’t stop. Sometimes the speed doesn’t matter. If the snail managed to get into Noah’s Ark, play it cool, your destiny is definite, but you must keep it to the truck. As you can see here on Ways to success

What do I mean? Give yourself time to achieve what you want. If it is business or education, just go for it. There are some hurdles on the way, but they may more of success than destruction. No matter how hard you try to jump over them, some need to be stepped on or knocked down to give your way. Be patient…Rome was not built in a day…and a journey of hundred miles starts with a step. Keep going girl!..and that’s me!
