Brainly, the world’s largest online learning community for students, parents, and teachers, has revealed updated findings to its previously conducted survey to understand how students are responding to the online learning classes that are being offered to them during the ongoing lockdown.
Having surveyed 2089 students in India, Brainly found that as many as 57% of the students are now receiving online classes during this unprecedented break. Of these, 53.7% believe that these classes are very good. Furthermore, 59.4% of the respondents have mentioned that they are being given homework during the break.
While schools are doing everything in their power to ensure the continuous and seamless education of students, 46.9% of them miss their teacher’s constant guidance while taking online lessons. Moreover, 46.9% of the students say they are bored at home and 45.4% are spending their extra time with their family.
Speaking on the survey, Michał Borkowski, Co-founder, and CEO, Brainly, said, “It is heartening to see the endeavours of the entire education industry to embrace technology and offer high-quality education to students. On our part, we are offering assistance to students looking for information or help with their study and homework problems. A lot of students and parents are turning to platforms like Brainly with a view to #CarryOnLearning, and we consider this our contribution to the global education space during this challenging situation. “
Since its launch in India, Brainly has proved its mettle as one of the country’s most effective online learning channels by registering a user-base of 20M+ and a Y-o-Y growth rate of over 100%. With a ‘community learning’ model that combines online education, social media, and machine learning, the platform facilitates an extensive network of peers, parents, teachers, and experts to empower students with a collaborative, flexible, and comprehensive learning experience.
