Online learning today has been thrust forward to a new and dynamic platform, never seen before. With the emergence of the fourth industrial revolution and Industry 4.0, there has been an unprecedented shift, almost a tectonic shift one may say, in the ecosystem of online learning. This, however, has been further exacerbated with the lockdown experienced around the world because of the COVID- 19 pandemic.
In this webinar, we will examine past research in student satisfaction, which has always been a barometer for assessing the success of online learning. We will also review this in the context of the challenges that are faced today, in a world that is at a standstill.
- What is industry 4.0 and how does it affect us?
- The current state of online learning
- How online learning is affecting students
