Online Learning: Insights from COVID
Conversions in Higher Education
The 2020/2021 COVID-19 pandemic has conceivably altered the educational landscape for many years to come – potentially forever. Educators heroically migrated to alternative distance learning approaches almost overnight. This study explores how higher education students evaluate online learning approaches. Specifically, this study compares student responses among different disciplines. Findings indicate that students from some academic areas responded favorably to techniques that students from other academic areas found less favorable. The results of this study indicate that student needs in online learning may be predictable by the degree programs in which the student enrolls. Implications for customizing online learning based on degree category are provided.
