In the midst of the corona epidemic and then the lockdown, the Kerala State Education Department is constantly trying to continue students' studies. In this series, online classes have been started for financially weak and backward students in state libraries and anganwadis. Regarding this, the Assistant Education Officer said that it is not possible to open schools this year. In such a situation, the state government has come out with a new way of online learning. From June 1, the government has started a trial run of online learning for students. Actually, because of not having a smartphone, the children of poor and backward communities should not be left behind in studies, hence these classes are being organized.
Classes run from 10 am to 5 pm
Talking about the online class, a teacher from Maruthonkara in Kozhikot said that a laptop, projector and screen were arranged for classes by the Maruthonkara Gram Panchayat for tribal students. Online classes are being organized in the state through the educational channel Victors. It is the first education satellite channel in the country to be run by the state education department. Through this, classes are organized for all the students of different classes from 10 am to 5 pm.

For online classes, all the students have been given a schedule according to their class. The children of Kattunayaka tribe also study in this online class according to their class schedule.
