The education boards are almost ready to release the results of the SSC exams, which are facing uncertainty due to the coronavirus. However, the results are not being released before Eid, said Mahbub Hossain, secretary of the secondary and higher education department of the education ministry.
This time, the education boards have made it easier to know the results through text messages. Manjurul Kabir, senior systems analyst at Dhaka Education Board, told Prothom Alo that pre-registration has started from Monday. Those who pre-register will get the results early. However, the results can be known in a short message in the same way as before. If pre-registration has been done in the new system, the result will be informed on the mobile of the concerned examinee.
For pre-registration you have to send SSC Board Name (first three letters) Roll Year from any mobile operator’s number to 16222. Two rupees will be charged for each SMS. The SSC exam was held last February. The total number of candidates was about 20 lakh. On the other hand, the HSC examination was supposed to start on April 1. The total number of candidates in this year’s HSC examination is more than 13 lakh.
The results were to be released in the first week of this month if there was normal time. But because of Corona, it is in the face of uncertainty. In this situation, the education boards said a few days ago, the results will be released within this month. Preparations have been made for that purpose. The results will be released any day and time if the government’s permission, said the chairman of the Dhaka Board of Secondary and Higher Education. Ziaul Haque.
Kovid-19 and the new education system An estimated 1.3 billion students around the world have been absent from schools, colleges and universities since March 23 due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. As a result of the closure of all institutions across the country, more than 80 percent of the world’s students are keeping distance from educational institutions. On the other hand, another 274 million students are being affected due to the closure of local department institutions. The challenge of online education
1. The biggest challenge for online learning is building the right infrastructure. Since many areas do not have stable internet connection and majority of students in rural areas do not have smart devices that can connect to the internet. 2. This has also become a major challenge as the online process has been disrupted due to load shedding. 3. There is a lack of awareness and an unknown fear between teachers and parents.
4. If students continue to learn only through e-learning, a lack of discipline and other important skills will be observed among them. Such as communication and social skills. 5. Ensuring a clear grading system due to lack of proper assessment system is a challenge for now.
The future of online education: 1. Learning materials can be divided into a wide range, they can be properly evaluated and reviewed during class. 2. Through e-learning, it is possible to reach out to those remote places where schools and colleges cannot be implemented. 3. Saves a lot of time. 4. E-learning makes it possible to connect teachers and students around the world.
5. Lots of practical costs associated with traditional education. Required applications: Digital learning management systems, communications and e-learning platforms are playing an important role during this epidemic. Software and applications can assist learning providers in managing, planning, delivering and tracking the learning process. Numerous responsible teachers feel that this stagnation will cause irreparable loss to the students where all the educational institutions are closed indefinitely.
Some educational institutions have already chosen alternative approaches to provide education. In this new situation you too can ensure uninterrupted study for students through maximum use of technology. Thrive and Deeksha applications are the two simplest and most effective online classroom platforms in this disaster situation. Through the maximum use of these, it is becoming possible to provide uninterrupted education to the students.
