In my opinion, Zoom serves as a great platform for online classes mainly for three reasons; technology-wise, the application itself is very technical friendly in terms of the clearness and preciseness the steps of installation were and how quick it was for me to familiarize myself when joining meetings and clicking buttons (audio, video, etc.); for the theory lessons, I honestly don’t have any concerns with that because I enjoyed how classes started with icebreaker questions or games especially kahoot which strengthened my knowledge and confidence about the topics despite it being online; lastly, as students we were rest assured by our trainers that we were not alone during lectures and assessments because they were thoroughly discussing every bit of information and sharing their own experience that we needed to know and of course they were very enthusiastic, patient and accommodating with our questions or concerns. I think the only downside of the online classes is the uncertainty of the stability of internet connection in some circumstances. 


Overall, online lessons via zoom were truly worth remembering as it provided me a lot of information and enhanced my comprehension with the course I am pursuing. I am absolutely amazed and grateful for the efforts of the trainers that positively changed my perspective on online classes despite the pandemic that’s happening.
