Much is said and discussed about the damage that the pandemic caused by the Coronavirus has left and will leave over time in Brazil. And everything indicates that one of the losses will be in the educational area, as many students, while being restricted in their homes, remained without access to face-to-face classes. One way out has been access to online teaching and learning. However, in view of the fact that the majority do not have connections that allow access to studies via online, one route that has been optimistic in this context of uncertainties has been the exhibition of remote (online) classes via television. In this sense, access by the majority of students who have a good connection, has often managed to maintain a study routine via online, which has managed to remedy, albeit briefly, the possible gaps that the classes witness. are leaving in these times of social isolation. This article is the result of a context focused on remote classes due to the social isolation imposed by the pandemic caused by COVID-19, in this year 2020, in the city of Salvador-Bahia-Brazil.
