Amid the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, all schools and educational institutions in most states in India have been shut in order to protect students and kids from the infection. Mentioning that the decision was taken considering the confirmed infection cases gradually rising in the country, the Health Minister said, enforcing social distancing was a must to reduce virus transmission.
Many educational institutions are using videoconferencing applications of WebEx, Google, Zoom, etc. to bring the classes into students’ homes.
'Angrezi Medium' director Homi Adajania, took to his Instagram handle to share a picture of his son attending classes at home on a computer. 'Kaabil' director Sanjay Gupta couldn't believe that this was possible and also shared a picture of his son attending the class at home online.
Man I never imagined this.— Sanjay Gupta (@_SanjayGupta) March 16, 2020
My son is on my iPad getting live lessons from his teachers online. There is an app called ZOOM and the entire class is live on it. The teachers are conducting a proper class.
I am so proud of my son Shivaansh. He woke up and suddenly realised that he has to take his classes online. He downloaded the ZOOM app on his own and connected with his class in school all on his own.— Sanjay Gupta (@_SanjayGupta) March 16, 2020
