Preparedness for Online Learning in the Context of Monkeypox Virus: A Literature Review
Keywords:Monkeypox, Covid-19, e-learning, learning during Monkeypox
There are rising concerns about understanding the future effects of the Monkeypox virus on all life aspects, one of which is education. The authors argue that the old outbreak of covid-19 has changed teaching forever. The educational process had been changed dramatically, and policymakers have focused on e-learning, whereby education is undertaken remotely on online learning platforms such as Zoom, WhatsApp, and Microsoft Teams. To understand the possible effect of Monkeypox on education, the authors rely on secondary data published recently regarding the same by research scholars, health centres, and international organizations to create a comprehensive discussion. A planned comparison shows that the classroom starts losing its monopoly on the environment of the learning process. Recent theoretical developments have revealed that shifting to online learning is not a concern because it escalates the retention of information. Furthermore, the effect of Covid-19 on the educational process has been made here to stay for the long run. Having this in mind, all educational institutions and related parties, such as teachers, students, ministries of education, and policymakers, already have enough experience to cope with any unexpected change in the learning process. Thereupon, the Monkeypox virus will not affect the educational process significantly like in the past three years, i.e., 2020, 2021, and 2022.
