Online learning’s big moment has arrived, and education is about to be revamped just as much the industries that have moved to telecommuting during the novel coronavirus pandemic. COVID-19 has forced K-12 school districts and universities to close and send students home. This reality has forced a crash course for online learning plans and technology for students and faculty alike.

The education industry’s move to remote instruction mimics the work-from-home move in enterprises. Video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and WebEx (both thinQ partners) are being used heavily as are learning management systems like Canvas, Blackboard, and Google Classroom.
Like bigger companies in the private sector, education’s massive online education experiment is going to accelerate changes that have been in play since the first Web browser was released in the early 1990’s. The primary reason that universities and some school districts K-12 have been able to go to remote learning is that the technology stack has evolved in recent years.
COVID-19 has already pushed remote learning mainstream and some institutions are going to be caught flat-footed. As learning goes digital, there will be budget upheaval ahead that administrators will have to navigate. If there was ever an industry waiting to be disrupted, education is back at the forefront.
