Teachers have been working on honing analytical and problem-solving skills, critical thinking, reasoning, research and innovation skills, imagination, creativity, and effective communication of students.

Though e-learning existed long before 2020, it was mostly used as a substitute to face-to-face classroom engagement. Educators had to swiftly adjust to only teaching using digital platforms, modifying their teaching style, curriculum design, evaluation, and record-keeping.
