This sudden closure of educational institutions across the globe has led to the growth of online learning platforms, in a bid to maintain some sense of normalcy. Even though two-thirds of countries across the world have fully or partially re-opened schools, most of the lower-income countries aren’t tracking children’s learning or counting remote education as an official ‘school-day’.

The coronavirus crisis and these changes in the education sector are far from over. At this stage, what we can agree and work on are the relevant opportunities which are standing as we face this crisis.

It still may be too early to say how students and teachers will handle online learning in the near future, but the impact of COVID-19 on education is here to stay. While remote learning comes with its challenges, a shift to online learning platforms also gives new opportunities for students to try out different modes of education.

It's possible that, once the pandemic settles down, we may see a continued increase in education systems using digital platforms for study aids, as well as students embracing online learning for their higher degree programs.
