It doesn't work, "This is the computer keyboard, it's used to enter data into the computer." I doubt the students even know what is "data." It seems like the first course, but if he's been giving courses, why repeat the first course? If he's dedicated, why doesn't he bring his own computer into the classroom?

All they need is a laptop and a Projector, Both of which come for just ₹45000 ($690 approx). Which is cheaper than an S9 😞

Is teaching the features of the Microsoft Word program really teaching "computing"? I would say that the subject of computing covers deeper topics, like coding or hardware/software development. Microsoft Word is simply a single form of word processing software, which is a pretty specific and limited topic to teach about.

There's no way they are going to understand computer science man lol. How many people understand mechanical engineering just because they own cars? Not many.

The whole money generated from the numerous viral videos of him including this one ,should be donated to him and his school so that he doesn't have to do this for the rest of his career.

People having nothing teach students everything. But in India people having everything don't want to teach students and want to earn without working.
