Kerala Began the academic year in the schools with online virtual classes to avoid the academic loss of the students. To ensure the students’ learning doesn’t suffer, Kerala started the online classes named “First Bell” on Monday. Over 45 lakhs students attended the online classes organized by the state education department with a motive that the students don’t miss out on the lessons in the lockdown period.

With the lockdown 5.0, life is slowly returning back to normalcy. Relaxed restrictions in Kerala eased the curbs and shown the first sign of normalcy with the starting of new academic year in the schools. The online sessions are being telecast through VICTER’s channel for class 1 to 12.

Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vinayan said, “Although online learning is not complete, it is possible to equip children with learning.” He wished all the students a wonderful academic session. Pinarayi Vinayan added that the teachers and parents should ensure that the children attend the online classes. It’s not possible to conduct normal classes as it may result in the spreading of the virus.
“We need to carry forward the studies of our kids,” said Vinayan.

The Educational Minister of Kerala C Raveendranath said, “It’s not an alternative to the offline mode of the classroom rather it’s the maximum support the Educational department is  trying to provide to the students.”

The Kerala Infrastructure and Technology for Education (KITE) released the time schedule for the classes. The virtual classes for class 1 to class 12 will be conducted on weekdays (Monday to Friday) from 8: 30 am to 5: 30 pm on the VICTER’S channel and YouTube.
