Learning from the Pandemic to Improve Digital Learning Outcomes

This webcast was hosted in partnership with Guild Education.Guild education logo.

Video platforms proved essential to ease the transition online amidst a pandemic and allowed institutions to continue delivering education. However, as we are nearly a year into a world where learning is largely taking place online, it is clear that emergency remote learning solutions do not yield the same education outcomes as in-person, or as courses and institutions specifically designed for online learning.

As we look ahead to a post-pandemic world where digital education will be even more prevalent, what opportunities did the pandemic provide, and what lessons have we learned? How can we ensure high-quality online learning that improves access and attainment, and how do we ensure students, staff, and professors are equipped to thrive?

Our panelists discussed strategies for engaging students, minimizing platform fatigue, and improving comprehension.
