Due to coronavirus, people were asked to remain at home, and that affected education. Students had to face a new challenge, online classes. And this makes us question: how online classes affect concentration and productivity among students.
First, the main problems were that not all students had a computer or connection to Wi-Fi, but then, online classes also affected concentration and productivity among students who had never done online classes before.
Students, were the only ones controlling the time they spent studying, and during classes they also had to face distractions such as, YouTube, Netflix, Instagram, housework, etc. Even students realized it, “Online learning is not efficient, due to the lack of interest students are giving to this matter, as well as the fact that student’s focus is compromised by other things as well.” Thinh Nguyen, a student at Taft, said.
