St John’s Diocesan School for Girls recently took to Facebook to share a funny compilation about teaching online classes.

St John’s DSG shared the clip in the hope that people can relate as online teaching (and business meetings for that matter) has become the norm during the national lockdown in South Africa.

Along with the clip, the school in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal said that they are prepared to start their online classes.

“Like the rest of the world, we will be heading into a new world of teaching, unlike what we’ve ever experienced before. It’s exciting and perhaps a bit daunting too, but our teachers have spent hours training, practising and getting ready for tomorrow: the very first, totally virtual day of school at St John’s DSG.

“They’ve also had a good laugh at themselves! So, in the spirit of fun, they’ve put together a ‘blooper reel’ of everything that could go wrong during online teaching (and they are putting measures in place to ensure these awkward online moments – hopefully! – do not occur).

“Well done to our phenomenal teachers. We are so proud of you for all your effort, hard work and sacrifice during this time!”

The video quickly went viral after it was shared on 14 April 2020, and proceeded to clock in over 84 000 views (as of 15 April 2020).

“I have watched this so many times and have not had such a good laugh since lockdown started. Thank you for sharing! Not just for lightening the mood but also for everyone’s hard work and efforts!” said one social media user after watching the video. “Have watched this a few times and we have all laughed out loud!” said another.

Others wanted to thank the teachers for their hard work:

“Thank you for this hilarious clip! Teachers have been feeling nervous about remote teaching and afraid they will mess up!”
