Professional Online Sikh School


Recommended Posts

A professional online Sikhi based school. 

Question for parents with young kids:

  1. What it would take you to have your child enrolled in the online school on top of their regular school?
  2. What level of support do you need to get you and your kid to participate?
  3. Does cost matter?
  4. Does self-paced course/lesson better than Live programs?

Question for general sangat:

  1. Should there be any tiers in the program - Advanced, Intermediate, and Novice
  2. Should it be Free of Cost or basic cost such as monthly fees to cover running cost?
  3. Should it be more focused on those community members who are not in touch with Sikhi (Not going to Gurdwara sahib regularly etc)? 

Would appreciate views & suggestions on the above ...

Parent

1. Obviously it depends on the content and the aim of the school. It would be good to have all aspects of Sikhi in one place which has authenticity. No too much pressure for them to learn and churn out material to sit exams. It would be more of quality rather than quantity .

2. Support level , to get a clear understanding what will be taught and the kids and parents expectations right from the beginning.

3. Yes Cost does matter. We have 100's of Gurudawara who should have a budget set aside to invest in the kids and our future generation. So ideas such as this can be researched and developed without thinking about funding. If the cost was reasonable I would pay plus as already mentioned if free its not taken seriously.

4. Self paced is good , but there needs to be a facility where questions can be answered. May be have one or 2 live sessions and the rest self paced.

 

Sangat

1. Yes there should be tiers , but I think most importantly the material should be authentic. As theres a lot of online material , which ones are good resources , average and bad .

2. May be set up some kind of certification structure for sikhi which over time is recognized and can be used by individuals to train/educate other members of the public. Like many certification courses , they cost but not too much ( starting form £10 plus) The task should be to get as many people doing the online courses as possible, then the price can be low and you will cover your costs.

3.It should be focused to all the public regardless of their background. Made available to businesses ,schools, colleges, universities as part of the establishments diversification program.

You have organisations such as Basics of Sikhi , Rajoana TV , Sikh Network etc.. who are doing a brillant job of explaining about sikhi. Tap in to them , make it a collective journey as you may find , they may already have a structure , resources in place , they just need a proper online presence. Reach out to the Sangat who have gyan about Sikhi  via social media and Gurudawara , as there are many Scholars out their. Why is Basics of Sikhi successful , because they keep it simple , easy to understand and follow. 

As a parent one of the biggest hurdles for kids is speaking punjabi. Having dialogue with their parents/grandparents . My younger one , hardly speaks punjabi , but what I have found is sikh stories helps a lot. May be have online live sessions where sangat speak punjabi , general punjabi so at least they can particpate in conversations with the elder generation.
