This edited volume examines the implications of COVID-19 on distance and online learning, discussing how the move to online teaching and learning modes proved to be a source of immense institutional, organizational, and educational challenges.
With chapters grounded in theoretical and methodological approaches pertinent to education and pedagogy, the book explores the relevance of theory to the educational situation brought about by the pandemic and highlights the specific issues and challenges that distance learning has to account for in crisis situations. Key topics discussed include innovations and best practices in online learning, research, and management; developments in computer-supported collaborative learning, training, and research; the use of intelligent tutoring and mentoring systems in times of crisis; the role of university leadership and users’ perceptions and attitudes to online teaching and learning.
The book offers fresh insights into the specificity of distance learning in a pandemic and its effects in established working patterns. It will be highly relevant reading for academics, researchers, and post-graduate students in the fields of online learning, distance learning, educational technology, and pedagogy, as well as university administrators and those directly involved in online teaching.
