COVID-19 has forced businesses and higher education institutions to swiftly move to alternative teaching methods and adopt new technologies to support distance learning — like video conferencing software, online assessment tool, virtual practice labs, and other e-learning resources, in an effort to keep student and instructors safe and healthy.
The pandemic has been providing tech insights at scale as to what learning and development look like, allowing it to potentially shift from just content dissemination to augmenting interactions with instructors, personalization, and independent learning. It is also important to understand that rolling out online learning strategy—overnight, with no training, and often without sufficient bandwidth—will leave many with a sour taste about the whole exercise. Many people may well continue to associate e-learning with lockdowns, recalling frustrations with trying to log on or mucking through products that didn’t make sense.
In response to the number of universities, and educational bodies that are shuttering campuses to learners over the next several weeks, and as members of the education community, IIHT has stepped up equally well to help business facilitate online learning for the home-bound workforce, offering services, resources, and learning platforms to universities affected by the health crisis for free until the crisis cedes.
