These days, most schools around the world are implementing online lessons and other types of distance learning options as part of precautionary measures to stop the spread of COVID-19.
While most parents express concern that their children are unable to join the lessons for lack of gadgets, even the teachers have a similar problem!
Many teachers have to shell out their own money to buy gadgets to ensure they can post lessons to their students. Others have difficulty in making videos of the lessons or posting these online.
A chemistry teacher in Pune, India, recently went viral for her ingenuity as she found a way to solve some of the teaching issues.

Teacher Moumita B did not have a tripod to use for taking a video of the chemistry lessons she has to make for her students. Just like many teachers in India (and other parts of the world for that matter), Teacher Moumita B did not have a lot of money to invest in equipment for her lessons.
So, instead of buying a tripod that’s currently out of her budget, she created a makeshift tripod using some pieces of cloth, a hanger, and a chair. The simple but useful ‘tripod’ earned the attention of many people who admired the teacher for her clever hack.
Instead of complaining about making videos of the lessons despite the lack of equipment, she simply made use of resources available to her at home. Her dedication and positive attitude to the situation earned her much admiration from netizens.
“I don’t know where or who. But this picture made my day. A teacher setting up their online class with available resources. ❤️ There is so much passion in this picture makes me overwhelmed. #COVID19India,” one netizen wrote.
Hats off, Teacher Moumita B!
