Aims and objectives
- To complete the lessons needed to learn and practice according to age.
- To avoid the difficulties that they will face due to the reduced curriculum.
- In the period when school is not open, failure to learn the required lessons would mean that in the remaining time of the academic year, a reduced curriculum would be needed to teach those lessons and this should be avoided.
- To complete the lessons needed for the continued learning according to age.
- From this time onwards, learning from online may become a situation which cannot be avoided and therefore students should become accustomed to this type of learning.

student participation during online teaching.
