But some students cheat. Making a video where you pretend to carefully listen to the teacher and write something down. And put this video instead of the background. The teacher takes a record for a live stream. And the students at this time, “skipped”, hang the toys on the phone.

The education system was in an unprecedented situation. It gives all involved a huge stress.
