1.How did COVID-19 impact EDU Brain Academy? How did the institute overcome those challenges?
The covid 19 pandemic had made a significant impact on Edu Brain Academy in the fall of enrolments. We have seen the drastic declination of enrolment for the first time. The campus was shut down in March and this is the time of rising of enrolment nationwide, where the student seek opportunity to visit to the campus or attend seminar/events. There were some frequent reasons we have received from the respondents in this pandemic that they either planned to attend two-year course rather than opting for 4-year course or another option they chose such as taking a gap year. In spite of providing a new platform of virtual learning—the acceptance of this new method of teaching was very less, which made a negatively impact on enrolments.
Furthermore, we overcome those challenges after taken some compulsory resources and safety measures at Institution.
The Institution have implemented social distancing and adopted some classes online some in person with new technologies.
Mandatory on-campus wearing of masks.
temperature checks and full body sanetization before entering class.
Gatherings limited to groups of 10 or less.
