According to Jay Sawyer of Northbrook, a shift to virtual classes that was caused due to the coronavirus could be beneficial if continued even after the pandemic ends. He notes that online education up until now has been relegated to the equivalent of a hobby at most universities. With the pandemic, it has become a backup plan for many. However, if universities strategically embrace this change, online education could expand access exponentially and drop its cost by magnitudes. And this can be done while shoring up revenues for universities in a way that is more policy-proof, recession-proof, and pandemic-proof.
Jay Sawyer of Northbrook says that unfortunately the moving online over just a few days this March didn't go well for both teachers and students. While the former were forced to revamp lesion plans overnight, the latter fled home with many in faraway time zones prolonging jet lag just to continue synchronous learning.
