COVID-19 and the Use of Remote Learning
With institutions worldwide considering how the global outbreak could affect its institutions, major universities have already begun to shift their courses online to reduce risk and the outbreak’s impact on instruction. Many institutions across the University of California system have cancelled in-person classes to make the switch to remote learning and implement various methods of remote work and technology-focused pedagogies more than ever. As developments continue to arise, additional schools and organizations are expected to follow suit.
