Online schools, are institutes that conduct their classes in an online mode, either in a hybrid mode or entirely online. The reasons for making online schools may be varied. It might be due to lockdown situations or simply due to geographical limitations. There may also be institutes that want people to access their courses anytime, anywhere. Whatever the reason might be, online schools are gaining a momentum these days.

In online schooling, teachers and students get many facilities, including a smartboard or whiteboard, screen sharing, and classes are scheduled automatically using the school ERP software.

Importance of online schools

  • If students miss any lecture or class, they can go through it again by accessing the recordings.
  • Automatic scheduling of classes using the school ERP software helps in reminding of the class and when to join.
  • There is no need to take separate attendance. School ERP softwares facilitate ease of taking attendance and record management.
  • Online schooling allows for time management. Classes usually start on time and end on time.
  • Online school helps in the easy management of assignments.

Is online school better than offline school?

Teachers can teach their students through online digital classrooms without much hassle when it comes to online schooling. Students can without difficulty attend classes from the comfort of their homes. They save time and exertion and also get to spend more time with their family. As long as they have the right infrastructure and resources, online schooling is better in terms of gaining knowledge. The only limitation that online classes may have is with respect to peer interaction. Nowadays, most online schools have fully integrated school ERP software that allow children to interact with their friends through interconnected apps. Students can also stay connected with their teachers through online chats or doubt-solving features available in many school ERP software.
