I think COVID-19 has affected aspects that how to conduct education.
Due to COVID-19, we have taken online-classes instead of face-to-face class. So, instructor had to switch the methodologies face-to-face class to online-class. Probably, it made them confused because they weren’t be used to using digital devices such as zoom, collavod, and teams. As a result, many students feel uncomfortable to take classes smoothly. In addition, instructor couldn’t use a lot of teaching aids to use at face-to-face classes. They also had to use teaching aids for online-class.
I’ll conclude summarizing my opinion. First, we have taken online-classes instead of face-to-face class due to COVID-19. Second, instructor couldn’t use a lot of teaching aids to use at face-to-face classes. Therefore, I think COVID-19 has affected aspects that how to conduct education.
This COVID-19 situation change our study life. Most of learner have to use online device to keep distance from each other person. But I think there are some negative point. The opportunity to exchange each opinion are reduced compared to taking face-to-face class. In addition, when there is something I don’t understand, I cannot ask something to friends or professor easily. I have to solve the problem by myself. Therefore, COVED-19 situation has bad affected on my education.
I think COVID-19 changes our education into “seeking education”. I mean even now when we live through threat of COVID-19, we continue to seek better online education. Last year, most of my teachers gave us assignment or exam through UNIPA. This year, however, some teachers use COLLAVOD or Google form for the exam, and they seem to make a big effort to prevent students’ injustice. As you know, the reason why teachers introduce new system to their education is growing technology or that many teachers notice the “new” functions of these kinds of LMS.
In addition, I also feel that it is hard get opportunities to communicate with others in online classes, and it is not communication, it is “interaction”. In online classes, it sometimes happens that more than two people say something at the same time, and others can’t catch any voice and they are confused about that. Then, the atmosphere is frozen, and either one yield his/her turn and other one start talking again… the number of saying “I’m sorry, it’s your turn. Please go ahead.” is increasing from when online classes started, and I feel difficulty speaking as usual (before COVID-19). And I’m so afraid of frozen atmosphere that I have to keep talking or care more about who start talking. In short, I have many experiences that I have to be attentive to talking. So, I realized that “real / face-to-face” communication is important for our lives and education.
First, COVID-19 has made a significant difference in my future plan. In the fall semester, I was planning to study abroad in The UK. But because of COVID-19, that plan was canceled. Studying abroad was one of the reasons why I decided to come to this University, and I feel I got lost in the fog. Now I think I cannot acquire the skills I expected to do.
Second, COVID-19 force students to take online classes, and I have a difficulty in taking them because of my wi-fi system. I often be ejected and sometimes the voice of teachers are cut, so I cannot hear them well.
These effect has huge impact for me, and I feel very stressful. My education is now far from what I wanted to have. I’m very tired of COVID-19 because my worry about university life knows no limit.
The situation of COVID-19 has affected my education. For example, I have taken online-class via zoom for the first time, and used a lot of apps or website. Although I thought that I cannot receive much information compared to face-to-face class, thanks to the efforts of teachers or professors, I was able to understand the lesson. Also, I’ve found the strengths of taking online classes. For example, teachers can use power points more than face-to-face class. Therefore, it allows students to visualize the content of the lesson, using pictures, font color, and graph. Moreover, students can easily take photos of slides, and easily review the lesson.
Through the pandemic of COVID-19, I have learned the importance of online education. In 2021, global and innovation gateway for all plans starts, and the use of online education will increase. Therefore, teachers and students, and even their parents need to understand what online education is. However, COVID-19 had a good effect on experiencing online education. Even after this pandemic will be over, I think we can use technologies more effectively than what we used to be through our experience.
My education’s prospect has broken by COVID-19. At first, when I was a junior high school student, I hoped to study abroad if I’m a university student. However, it is difficult for students including me to study abroad in current situation. Studying abroad will be a big turning point in our lives. COVID-19 may deprive me of the turning point.
Second, we have to take online classes because of COVID-19. Because of that, we can’t learn sufficiently. I think face-to-face class is better than online one. This is because the professor prepare classes for a long time with the intention of taking face-to-face class. If I entered in this university in 2016, I would be able to do better learning.
What I want to say is not because of this university, because of COVID-19. I’m so tired of COVID-19.
COVID-19 has had some bad effects on my education.
First, we have to take many online classes. There were many educational processes that we had to give up. I have thought that “If I took face-to-face classes, as usual, I could study more deeply” many times.
Second, I had to cancel my studying abroad plan this fall semester. I was very shocked because the big reason why I chose this university was to join the GEL and apply to the student exchange program. I was convinced that it will improve my English skills, so losing this opportunity was a big damage for me.
There are many things I used to think it was natural before the spread of infection of COVID-19. This situation makes me feel I should be grateful for them. I hope we can return to normal life.
Since COVID-19 has spread all over the world, we are not able to do many fun things such as having events and traveling to other places. In addition, we see news about COVED-19 every day, we are not able to estimate when this pandemic is going to end. Due to stressful circumstances, everyone has to wear face masks and sanitize their hands many times during the day.
To reduce this stress, I would recommend taking a walk outside to look at flowers and trees or having plants in the house. You can refresh by walking outside which produces serotonin which makes you feel happy. Green color relieves your stress. The substance in plants called phytoncide stimulates your parasympathetic nerve system which makes your brain relax as well as reduce your stress.
I have two plants in my room and I feel happy when I see them. I am a lazy person, so a cactus is the best plant for me. I have been thinking of buying a new cactus with flowers. Seeing different flowers while taking a walk is very fun.
Do you have plants? If you do, why did you buy it, or how does it make you feel? If you don’t have one, do you want to buy any plants?
Lastly, how will you enjoy your time when you take a walk outside?
COVID-19 is not just a health crisis but also education crisis for me.
First, since the virus affects our life, all of our classes have been conducted online and I’m having a hard enough time concentrating on my online courses as it is right now. I’ve already got a lot of homework and now, every day I have to do my assignment until midnight.
Second, Also, It’s harder to communicate with classmates by using ICT tools than we did before. So for my seminar, some activities are difficult to do them online and I do not have time to think about activities for members to improve their English skills instead of the activities we used to do.
Finally, When we do online courses, we have to think about the digital divide. If some people have a great network and computers but others don’t, there would be a big gap between them in terms of education.
COVID-19 definitely has a great impact on our lives and education and I hope everything will be normal soon.
My computer had broken since 2 weeks ago and it made me so hard to take online classes. I found 8 hard points without using computer in online classes.
1 Power point and Word apps. I could use them by my iphone but the screen was too small to check sentences I wrote or put a picture on the powerpoint.
2 Zoom app. It was taugh to watch the screen that a professor shares for students.
3 To submit assignments. Sometimes if a size of a pdf and a word file are big, they can not be sent by my iphone or their size will be small and difficult to see well.
4 Typing is also difficult. When you want to write many papers with an iphone, it would be stressful for you to use small key board of it.
5 Phone capacity. If you install some apps for online classes and tasks, it would consume your phone storage.
6 Memories. When you want to organize files and save tasks, you can not do that into your USB memory stick.
7 if you need to search something quickly, you need to change the window or app and then search it by using an iphone only. Compared to it, if you have both computer and a iphone, you can use both of them at the same time.
8 The quality of the camera. Iphone’s camera is more clear than computer’s one so if you really care about your fashion or if you fail to make up your face, it’s going to be hard time, especially for women.
Overall, I found a computer is very useful tool in current situation.
