The rise of covid-19 from the streets in Wuhan ripped the world apart. With the advent of social distancing norms, businesses including the schools, colleges were forced to shut down for an indefinite span to curb the spread. The prolonged crisis incited by the pandemic not only altered the way of life but as well pushed the humans to amend the perspectives regarding everything. Although a little hope is restored with the emerging trials of vaccination against the coronavirus, in the meantime, businesses including the education system underwent a radical transition.
Following the outbreak and the social distancing constraints, the rise of virtual technology increased in almost every sector. Therefore, e-learning came to be the new benchmark to bridge the learning gap. While the world switched to e-learning, the effort applied to adapt to this new normal is not unknown to us. Regardless of the struggles, many are still trying to help the underprivileged to gain adequate access to e-learning.

The withdrawal and cancellation of board exams, termination of internship programs and job interviews, career layoffs, and the rising global mortality rate, the pandemic indeed terrified us to a point of no hope. The prolonged lockdown well scoured the stress that again intensified mental health issues amongst the adults and instigated a laidback attitude amongst the students in terms of learning.

While manual activities were forced to call off following the safety measures against the covid-19, the digital medium served as a windfall amid the pandemic.
