My joy and excitement were having no bounds when I came to know that the Institute of Skills Development, Swat is going to start online classes via different educational technologies applications like Zoom, MS Team, and their own learning management system. Undoubtedly, this decision was taken in the neck of time. In the ongoing scenario of the Corona outbreak, where everyone whether teenagers, elders, youngers, high class, middle class, lower class no matter whichever profession they are belonging to are confined and restricted to their homes. As we all know that we are not supposed to go outside and are directed by the government authorities to stay in isolation at home. In this situation, it is our duty to stay at home unless any emergency and important work is there to be performed. We cannot make any anticipation that for how long the COVID-19 pandemic will exist on this planet. Not at all. Should we wait or move forward? Definitely, we have to move on from these stagnant circumstances and bring some valuable stuff into our lives.
Now the question arises in my mind that how can one take benefit of quarantine duration if someone wants to spend that time in learning some new and professional skills as institutions are mostly facing closure due to the recent outbreak. It is not a herculean task to sort out the above problem in the existing epoch, where the world is transformed into a global village by the internet. We all know that the internet is now included in our basic commodities like electricity, etc. Therefore, we can utilize it extravagantly nowadays by means of virtual learning. A simple step is to join an online program offered at ISD Swat to get improve in every aspect of learning and seek something positive in the current horrible and outrageous prevailing situation, in the form of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Online learning is very economical with ease of access. There is no requirement of traveling to and from the educational institution. You can sit in your home, even in your bedroom to get involved in the learning process through your smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc. by using 3G/4G internet services. Secondly, online education is offering a good amount of diversity that makes you feel comfortable in a circle by getting much exposure. Anyone can get convenience accordingly.
The thing where online classes get juicy is that everyone is responsible for the learning process. My experience of online learning is really marvelous, after joining the ISD online English Language Program. Subsequently, things are turning around for me. However, I am not a veteran in English writing but I can write up to a beginner level. But, as I have never been spoken English before in the presentation so far. Therefore, as a novice English learner, now I am getting better day-by-day in the English language i.e. listening, speaking, writing, and reading. Genuinely speaking, revolution does not happen overnight but you have to pay something to get something as no pain no gain, and the more you get the more you have a desire for it. Let us move on and make a nexus with any online rostrum that suits you. The platform of ISD is highly recommended to you and especially for those who are seeking for something skillful. You should get benefits from this podium but do not wait till tomorrow what you can do today. Let’s just start and kick off the play now, Thank You!
