  5. An informative article, just in the time when it was needed the most. Zoom or yet alone any other third party app that organisations or educational institutions choose for carrying out online classrooms or meetings, may be suitable for short term but keeping in mind the conditions of the pandemic at the moment, we would have to work on streamlining online education in a secure manner. Educational institutions should work on creating a safe portal for online education, which is accessible only to the students, like some open universities and distance learning courses are. Similarly, IT companies should work on redefining the goals of online meeting and attempt to conduct it on a safer platform, testing it beforehand to avoid any loss in future.
