Most schools are still closed and teachers have to continue educating their students remotely. While online tools like Zoom help educators out while we’re all social-distancing, teaching things online has its own quirks and can drive some people to tears with laughter.

We wanted to make you Pandas smile and to let you know just what distance learning is like from teachers’ perspectives, so Bored Panda has collected a bunch of hilarious tweets about it. Scroll down, enjoy, and upvote your faves.

While some teachers are enjoying teaching their students online, others are exhausted by how difficult some kids find it to follow even the simplest instructions on Google Classroom. Luckily, plenty of teachers have got a great sense of humor and find ways to crack jokes even when things go sideways.

Even though most students are still improving their noggins online, some countries have already relaxed quarantine regulations and are getting kids back in classrooms, step by step. Though every country has its own way of doing things. Denmark is already allowing children up to the age of 11 to return to schools and nurseries, the BBC reports.

Meanwhile, Germany is also allowing students back into schools, though they have to sit at separate desks to ensure that everyone’s social-distancing properly. Students in Berlin went back to class a couple of weeks ago to take their final exams, too.

well, i haven't done that with a classroom, but that sounds an awful lot like being a construction project manager too. If there's a difference between 45 year old men and 9 year old boys, i'll give you a dollar

Lol my dad was a teacher. Once he went to the guy from the grocery store to tell him he had an error in his sign. Hilarious. As if he cares. He also was very mad at the ppl from a tv magazine for making spelling mistakes and said he didn't want it anymore. I never dared send him an email without checking first 20 times.

In Norway, high schools and universities are partially reopening while kindergartens have now fully reopened. France, meanwhile, has declared that primary school students will go back to class from May 11, but classes will have a maximum of 15 students. The Netherlands plans to do the same, though classes will be part-time; secondary students will have to wait until June 1 before they can go back to the schools they’ve (probably) missed so much.

But not everyone’s rushing to leave their homes. Even though South Korean schools reopened in April, they’re still almost entirely empty because it was decided that kids would be learning online. The only people in the classrooms are teachers who communicate with their students via the internet.

And you magically make sure those kids also stay at their 6 feet apart desks, not being kids and run around and hold hands, pull hair, whisper into each other's ear etc.

Isn't that true for most people who are essential in daily life? Instead, celebrities get praised who upload five videos of their mental breakdowns in theior mansions (could not decide which of the six bathrooms to use when taking a dump) and then raising money but selling an old t-shirt ("for corona charity").

I'm an introvert and really have to push myself in social situations. But as a Teacher's Assistant for Physics or helping tutor in the combined Math/Physics study room I had no problems because I was doing something I loved with other people that had the same interest.

Yeah. My English and math teachers have video chats twice a week where they answer questions and I don't think very many people come. I believe it the last time I went on one was week one or two and it's week 6 now. There were only a few other kids when I went.

The teachers I appreciate are the ones who made sure I learned what they were teaching. They were tough, thorough, kind, and sticklers for doing things properly. Forget the gifts which have always seemed like bribes more than appreciation. My college English professor was so knowledgeable and made sure we all knew the material he taught or we didn't pass the class. He set up 20 minute meetings for each student in every class every week at which he would dissect that week's essay. I took his classes for all four years, grammar, composition, and literature and he required essays in all of them! I can't imagine how much time that must have taken but 50 years later I am still appreciative of his caring. He left my small college a couple of years after I graduated and moved to a large university. At the time, no one knew where he had gone, not even his colleagues at my college. Years later I was able to track him down and called him to tell him what an effect he had had on me. Con't.
