Secondary and High school students should study online. The Idea that studying online is a thing for university students, is gradually becoming outdated.
Ohipopo is an online educational platform now available in the country of Cameroon which serves secondary and high school students.

Studying online solves some if not all of these problems. Below are some solutions to most of the problems secondary and high school students face.
1. Studying Online Boosts Students’ Confidence
Many students are usually shy to ask questions to their teachers in class when they do not understand a concept taught. This is usually because they are not very confident in themselves. Some student counselors even reported that these students keep romantic relationships with their classmates and are afraid to make mistakes in class. In the end, they go home with doubts and hence can’t get the best results.
At Ohipopo online learning platform, the student is free to study anywhere it is convenient for them. While studying, the student can ask any question to the teacher by just typing the question in the comment box, the teacher receives the question wherever he is and then answers it without even seeing or knowing who the student is. This boosts up the student’s confidence especially because his classmates are not there to see or hear his question. So by studying online, the student can confidently ask any question from his teacher and get a better understanding.
2. Students Can Catch Up On Lessons They Missed At School
The habit of students missing classes is inevitable for students in every school. Sometimes these students miss classes because they are sent home for not haven paid school fees. They can also miss classes when they are sick or when they are bereaved. One way or the other every student comes up with a reason for missing classes.

It is very normal that not all students can understand at the same pace in a class. Most teachers work following the speed of fast learners. We can’t blame these teachers you know. They have a syllabus to complete within a particular time frame. They also have a particular time period to deliver a lesson.

4. Studying Online Better Prepares students for Examinations
The anxiety that comes with the announcement of a test or when an examination is drawing near has been faced by nearly every student. It gets worse when students are not prepared for the examination. Some times these students are not very prepared because their teachers did not complete the entire syllabus.
