Because of the pandemic, many schools have implemented state of the art online platforms instead of using archaic software systems or video chats. This push in flexibility has shown colleges and institutions not only the benefits of inclusion, but it has raised the classroom sizes and boundaries of where they can teach. This also benefits students who traditionally had to move across the world if they wanted to attend another school in a different country. Now, students are all attending the same courses from across the globe.
Schools who already had proper online learning programs in place were better equipped to deal with the pandemic. Other schools who did not have these in place were forced to spend more to start from the ground up with an online structure to provide students. Other problems arose when new online learners needed more tech help, forcing many schools to hire more experts, support staff and teachers. Students are demanding high quality education. That is what they pay for and it includes support with technology, student services, library and counseling. Those departments are also finding innovative ways to help students plan their educational journey to suit them best.
