The State of Remote Education

Secondary schools, colleges, and universities are doing their best to adapt to remote learning. Educational professionals are following the stay-at-home orders mandated by governments throughout the world for the safety of students and educators. While some have executed this mission more fluidly than others, now is the time for all schools to assess their technology needs and plan for the future.

With remote learning likely here to stay in some form, adapting learning environments today will be critical to education. School administrators have been tasked with satisfying students and instructors with a better experience in the Fall semester of 2021. Online offerings should continue to enable equity of experience, regardless of a student’s location. Rounding out that experience is the on-demand aspect that is at the forefront of today’s learning environments.

Everyone knows that Covid19 completely shifted in-person education to fully remote. This had massive, worldwide implications for Higher Education and K-12. The changes have new implications for both students and teachers.

What’s working with online learning?

Hybrid learning is giving students more opportunities to learn in many ways says Christine Hagedorn a professor at Rosemont College in Pennsylvania. Hagedorn says that she can tell her students are engaged with the online lectures, activities, and assignments by watching the amount of time they are spending interacting with the online learning content. Yet, with so much change going on in Higher Education Hagedorn noticed that every teacher was handling their online learning time with students differently. In fact, The Chronicle of Higher Education study finds that 70% of school administrators are investing in education for teachers specifically about online education.
