Covid: The Change to Distance Education

Transition to Online Learning is Growing.

Covid-19 triggered a mass experiment for many educational institutions, even at the university and college level. The rise of online education will have a lasting impact on how and where post-secondary students learn.

Students looking to gain the skills to compete in the post-Covid world will demand more from digital education. Institutions should sieze the moment to give students and life-long learners greater flexibility in where, when, and how they learn.
