COVID-19 isn’t an online education test

This isn’t an online education test.

While many publications are suggesting we finally have a great opportunity to test online education outcomes due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) closures, it’s important to remember that this isn’t what this is.

Many live in-person classes are going to be delivered remotely – to students who may not be used to online delivery, and delivered by faculty who may not be used to teaching this way. This is a Hail Mary. This isn’t a true test.

The takeaway? Let’s understand what this, support our students and faculty the best way we can, and get through this together.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
