With the sudden outbreak of coronavirus spreading across the world, the deadly virus has impacted the educational system. This has lead to the inescapable shutting down of schools and educational institutions.

The coronavirus pandemic has generated a stressful situation for the students of Tula’s Institute as well. The Executive Director of Tula’s Institute Ms Jain said, “During these crucial times, having a sense of fear or anxiousness is quite natural. I urge each and everyone not to panic and don’t believe in rumours. There won’t be any food scarcity and we’ll have ample of supplies of all the daily essentials. The most important aspect currently is to fight this pandemic together. I request all to stay calm at your homes, eat healthy, follow basic hygiene and keep up with your overall health. Another important request to everybody is to try and feed as many stray animals, as they need us the most in these times. Please assist the daily wage workers and domestic helpers by any possible means. It’s high time we all take a stand and fight against COVID-19.”

She further said the Government is doing its part and we as responsible citizens should come together in individuality and stand for our family, our loved ones, our state, our nation and the entire world.

She also said, “Our priority is the health and safety of our students and we are taking extra steps to prevent the disease. The new coronavirus pandemic is likely to be a long event that will disrupt the rest of the academic year. We have secured our campus and are working on moving to online learning, thus creating safe spaces and opportunities to learn at a distance.”

She says, “At the moment, we are working on delivering all our teaching activities online. We have implemented and strengthened several technical options to connect students and faculties of the institute.”

Tula’s Institute is advising the parents, students, teachers and administrators to ensure that academics will remain on track via distance learning and home assignments. The faculty of the institute is responsible for preparing class timetables, lesson plans and study materials for the e-learning programme.

Tula’s is also urging parents to create an appropriate learning environment at home by providing their children with internet services and devices like laptops and smartphones. All the students have been advised to oblige and commit to the public policy of using learning devices during the process. The faculty at Tula’s is preparing interactive and engaging lesson plans and study materials for the students to study from home.

Silky also said, “We all know that this is a global emergency due to the speed of transmission of the infection. As such, the only way to deal and overcome with the emergency is to stay at home in order to reduce the infection as much as possible.”
