ABSTRACT
The emergence of coronavirus (COVID-19) and its rapid spread across Asia, Europe, United States of America and parts of Africa led to many republics implementing partial and complete lockdowns of their countries as part of the many solutions to curbing the pandemic. Internal measures included closure of all learning institutions and restricted mobility of citizens. Zambia responded by closure of schools and institutions of higher learning, and a partial lockdown. As an alternative to on-campus learning, some higher learning institutions in Zambia introduced E-learning for their students. This was not the case for primary and secondary schools until mid- Aprils 2020 when educational responses started being implemented. This paper highlights the E-learning and smart revision facility, a virtual classroom for Zambian primary and secondary schools.
