1888 Press Release – Dr. Sunil Ramlall, Professor of Business at Concordia University Wisconsin, will present a paper on Virtual Learning and Impact on Higher Education.

Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN-WI – Universities, colleges, and K-12 institutions across the world continue to struggle with COVID-19 especially given the influx of the new variant. Higher education continues to evolve in providing multiple options for students to pursue their degrees. There are clear indications that some students value the online modality while many students much prefer the face to face method of learning.

Actually, a recent Inside Higher Education article {Star, 2020 #382} explained that learners value the opportunity to have a choice between online and face to face learning opportunities. The necessity to provide options for learners is more pivotal than ever before to ensure students have options available that meet their needs.

With the challenges created by COVID-19, universities and other academic institutions have focused on online learning almost exclusively and hoping to grow enrollment through online degree programs. Much of the transition from traditional academic models to an online delivery model has been through crisis management where there have been a rush to transfer courses to an online model. . For many of these institutions, the question is whether these online models be sustainable and be the preferred option for pursuing courses and degrees.
