I'm a student myself so have had to make many changes over the past 2 years in education and would love hear from others who have been impacted in a similar way and your experience.

    I left university last year and my final term was heavily disrupted by covid-19.  Staff were under a lot of pressure to deliver online courses at quick turnaround, and on the most part I think they did a good job.  However, there were some weaknesses such as a lack of contact on particular courses and lectures cancelled last minute with signposting to reading instead, so this meant I felt particularly isolated.  How have you been coping?  What are you currently studying?  :)

    Hi there 

    Interesting topic 

    My son is school age during first lovkdown his home schooling had no structure 

    All He got was sent slides to read on topics he had already covered,  no contact , no checking to make sure anything work was being done , no work to submit , the work he was given took him at most 1 hour a day 

    Very hard to keep him motivated and lots of his class mates were doing nothing 

    Luckily 2nd lockdown came actual virtual classes that followed normal daily timetable were interactive and work submitted and attendance monitored 

    He missed out on nearly half year of any meaningful education 

    I did buy some books appropriate for his year and we worked through them
