With COVID-19 there has been a significant push for online education. Still universities and schools report that many students, as well as teachers, struggle. Online is for many a temporary solution, that is used doing the existing old type of education available online, but is in most cases not utilizing the opportunities and additional benefits possible.
We need to find ways to better utilize online media and also how to overcome the weaknesses seen. This is regarding both the need from a student as well as a teacher perspective. So far, online solutions do not seem to generate significant cost and scale advantages, even if they in many cases are possible to predict. With a better working online education we should be able to inease quality at the same time as becoming more cost efficient.
Do you agree with the statements above? How significant is this issue and what is the reason for that online is not meeting the needs?
We should here focus on trying to understand the nature of the problem, so please try to avoid to discussing concrete solutions, even if it is difficult. Potential solutions will be discussed in the next step of the process.
