Abstract:

Remote learning during times of a crisis, such as during the coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, differs markedly from well-planned online learning. In this paper, we highlight our experience in shifting to remote learning and outline lessons we learned from the experience. The COVID-19 pandemic brought a wholly new educational context that uncovered problems that concerned course delivery and assessment, communication and misinformation, and technology. These problems highlight a gap in research on rapid mid-term shift to remote learning during crises. Researchers can access and draw lessons from many resources to learn about effective online learning practices. However, limited research has examined remote learning in response to a crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. We present a case study at Bournemouth University in which we moved a business systems analysis and design (BSAD) course to remote learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our results reflect on the importance of learning focus, students focus, and learning resource focus for remote learning. We found that activities to promote effective communication and information resources, student engagement and support, and remote course delivery and assessment constitute essential elements in a rapid shift from blended learning to remote learning during a crisis such as COVID-19.

Abstract:

Shifting to remote learning during times of a crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, is very different from well-planned online learning. This paper highlights the experience of shifting to remote learning and outlines lessons learned from the experience. The COVID-19 pandemic brought a wholly new educational context, which uncovered problems such as; course delivery & assessment; communication & misinformation; and technology limitations. This highlights a gap in research on rapid mid-term shift to remote learning in times of a crisis. There are plenty of resources for Information Systems education to draw lessons for effective online learning practices. However, there is limited research on remote learning in response to a crisis, such as COVID-19. This paper presents a case study at Bournemouth University, in which a Business Systems Analysis and Design (BSAD) course was moved to remote learning during COVID-19. The results reflect on the importance of learning focus, students focus, and learning resource focus for remote learning. This includes activities to promote effective communication and information resources, student engagement and support, and remote course delivery and assessment. All these activities are essential elements in a rapid shift from blended learning to remote learning during a crisis, such as COVID-19.
