Downside of distance learning

/ 05:02 AM October 13, 2021

It is harder to assess student learning under distance or modular learning because of many reasons, like lack of gadgets or technology. This modality requires a laptop, computer, iPad, or smartphone, and even if you have these gadgets, they can be useless if their applications are not updated or the internet connectivity is unstable.

Using technology allows students to use Google Classroom, Google Drive, and Google Forms. However, this learning mode still has its disadvantages; it can be prone to cheating and is limited by time constraints.
