While schools will have basic information about their students and parents, collected during the admission process, to enable online education, more information needs to be collected covering - address, map location, number of devices at home, Internet connectivity on each device, availability of device with the student (if the device is owned by a parent who takes it to work, then it would be accessible to the student only in the morning or the evening), electricity supply situation, siblings and the grades they are studying in (since some of the offline activities can take support of parents and siblings), parent's educational status etc. See this [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OtWD_OePmJ7jCjRGxF8YMDftGAo4df1Cg7G8QrWUizY/edit?usp=sharing sheet] for an information template. Each school needs to create a similar document to plan its online and offline teaching efforts.

[https://teacher-network.in/OER/index.php/Learn_BigBlueButton BigBlueButton] is a free and open-source online teaching platform. It can be used as a standalone platform to teach or can be integrated with the Moodle Learning Management System. The latter option is suitable for teacher training programs while the former is simpler and hence suitable for student teaching. [https://teacher-network.in/OER/index.php/Learn_BigBlueButton BigBlueButton]  has the advantage that it does not require an app installation to use on the phone, a web address (URL) is sufficient.

Online teaching is NOT the conversion of 'chalk and talk' into video recording of lectures, much more creativity is needed to make the learning an engaging activity. Students are unlikely to spend hours watching videos of teaching. Interactivity is even more necessary in online learning.
