The world has changed upside down, we cannot meet with each other normally, we cannot talk to each other normally, we cannot commute normally, and hence we are doing most of the things online or virtually. Like having meetups online, and specifically, most of the universities are also teaching their students online. Under this pandemic of Covid-19, it is not easy for us to cope with the financial or the psychological pressure, we cannot be alone all the time, therefore, we have found ways to communicate with the people online and that is what the humans were doing in the past 50 years.

Online education impact under pandemic 

The impact of online education can be both good and bad, it depends if the teachers are not well trained and they are not able to cope up with the management of their students online.
