Indian schools enable students to continue studies online

Muscat: Students attending Indian schools in Oman can continue their education online, even as educational institutions remain shut to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Although Indian schools remain closed due to the onslaught of COVID-19, online classes are being organised by schools in order to cater to the educational needs of students.
The schools have already started classes for the students of X and XII from the first week of March.
Online tutoring for other classes will start from mid of April.
The Board of Directors of Indian Schools in Oman is expanding the scope of its knowledge repository website www.isovle.net to all students of Indian Schools across the Sultanate by including additional resources in various subjects through webinars, question banks and worksheets.
“We are going through an unprecedented time in our history, with all of us – board, schools, faculty, parents, and students facing unique challenges,” said Dr Baby Sam Saamuel, chairman of the Board of Directors of Indian Schools in the Sultanate of Oman.
“However, together we shall overcome these and ensure that our overall objective of imparting the best of 21st century learning continues in every way we can. As board, we would like to reiterate our support for our parent and student community and would also like to thank our teachers & faculty for overcoming many technological and personal hurdles in continuing to offer e-learning.”
Online learning for students to continue their academics was announced shortly after the Central Board of Secondary Education, which runs Indian schools all around the world, announced the cancellation of the remaining class X and XII examinations, owing to uncertainties over when academic institutions would be given the all-clear to reopen.
In this regard, CBSE had clarified that it would devise some mechanism to declare the results of the students studying abroad, protecting the interests of the students at highest level.
The system of grading for the purpose of declaring results will be worked out by the CBSE and informed to schools shortly.
