KATHMANDU: As the coronavirus pandemic has changed the teaching-learning method across the world in the past few weeks, Nepal is also planning for virtual classes amid the battle against the virus.

The Ministry of Education and Science and Technology (MOEST) and university authorities have started discussions with concerned stakeholders through e-meeting for proper management of education of the country if the situation becomes worse than now, the Rising Nepal reported.

The nation had already adopted distance education and e-learning in schools as well as universities, but now it needs to be extended and made accessible to all, said, Tulsi Prasad Thapaliya, Director General of the Centre for Education and Human Resource Development (CEHRD).

Thapaliya said there was no need to worry about two more weeks about school level education as all schools are closed after completion of this year’s academic session. But, the CEHRD has been consulting with authorities for resumption of education if they are unable to open schools even after April 20.

Currently, the government has been teaching Grade IX and X students through NTV plus from 11 am to 3 pm every day. Besides that, many online resources are being supplied even on CEHRD website, Madhav Prasad Dahal, information officer of CEHRD, said. Those online resources are for students from early childhood to Grade X.
Universities also starting virtual classes.
