The world has endured quite a bit of turmoil since March 2020. With the coronavirus pandemic ravaging countries, their governments and workforces, it is an experience that people never thought they would have in their lifetime. One silver lining that has come out of these hard times has been the development of Distance learning/working and the diminishing stigma associated with it.
I never imagined that I would be completing an entire year of my Bachelor’s degree over the internet. During this year, many students faced issues trying to cope with the increased anxiety, stress and the new method of learning. One day, I had an idea that would help consolidate all the learning material provided by our university.
My idea is to turn our material into an online library or a reserve using cloud tools. I hope it will be of succour to students who can’t attend the entire class due to network issues. We will create a shareable link to folders that will be segregated by semester, subject, and date. This will allow students to access exactly what they are looking for, and it will also allow them to upload their material. In this way, using the miracle of the internet, we would collaborate and it would instill a feeling of camaraderie in us. We might be in different parts of the world but, we would be together in this uncharted territory of online education.
I have shared the idea with other students and I’ve received a good response. The improvement I hope to bring is to eradicate the gap in education and problems caused by network issues. Many students have experienced burnout and frustration because they cannot hear their professors or understand the concepts being taught in class due to distortion in audio and video. This library will ideally be a one-stop solution to their problems with the curriculum.
