Due to the chilly weather, many elementary and comprehensive schools are considering shifting to temporary remote learning. Correspondingly, university students are also affected.
Remote lessons refer to classes that are conducted via the internet. They mostly take the form of video calls on platforms like Teams or Google Meet. This teaching mode gained immense popularity and became necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic when all schools had to cancel classroom lessons. Remote classes had both supporters and opponents.

Frost to blame
Due to freezing weather, many schools and universities opt for remote teaching. If the temperature falls below 18 degrees Celsius in the classrooms, the head of the institution may temporarily suspend classes. Additionally, if the temperature is below minus 15 degrees Celsius for two consecutive days at 9 p.m., the school management can either temporarily close the building or shorten lessons. These measures are being taken to ensure students' and staff's safety and wellbeing during harsh weather conditions.
E-learners are also lonely
Students at all levels of education, from primary to tertiary, may be excited about remote learning. However, this excitement can lead to the misconception that they can accomplish more in an online session than in a traditional classroom. This belief can result in gaps in knowledge and difficulties when returning to school. Eventually, all the missed material will have to be reviewed.
It's important to note that not everyone has the motivation to study at home. Daily activities and responsibilities can quickly become distractions, making it challenging to focus on studying. Additionally, remote learning can lead to feelings of loneliness due to the lack of peer contact. This isolation can lead to mental health problems like depression or other mental disorders.
