Online classes has become a requisite this year due to COVID19. However, the transition of physical classrooms to online classes have failed to keep pace with the learning in online classes in comparison with physical classrooms, which appears to be conspicuous. Students abound with doubts which cannot always be cleared in the online classes due to the additional time of the class being consumed by the slackening of internet speed which is not in the hands of both the professors and the students. Substantial screen recordings and screenshots testify the slackened Internet's play during online classes. Moreover, not everyone is able to attend the classes, attendance ratio testifies it the best, as they are not able to arrange a good smartphone or change their network operator as most of the students in a public university like Cotton University hail from poor and rural households. The consequences of this being students missing important lectures which will only add up to the misery of students in due course of time.

On the other hand of this learning process, our professors are also facing an unforeseen challenge of conducting online classes on daily basis. They are taking online classes for the first time and at the very first attempt they have to ensure that their explanations are understood by every student present in the class without even looking at them, as they are constrained by the scope of virtual classes. This disrupts the two-way interaction between professors and students. Moreover, they have to ensure proper network connectivity from their side which is not even in their hands. Also they have to repeat the explanation if any of the student fails to understand due to technical issues or any other issues . Our professors have been trying their best to make us understand the complexities of every chapters but their endeavor gets overwhelmed by the pathetic working condition of the online classes most of the time. Also, it has been heard that their were lots of disturbances in conducting online exams due to which marks were given on the basis of previous semester marks and assignments. Hence, the efficacy of online classes is under serious reservations.

Since, it is not possible to carry-on online classes effectively our demand lies in the best interest of all the parties involved to open the university with respect to the guidelines issued by the UGC and other competent authorities as Gauhati University affiliated colleges has done.
