Navigate online learning and potential learning loss with a Learning Enablement Platform built for students and faculty.
COVID-19 changed the higher education learning landscape for good - digital learning is here to stay.
An educationdata.org report found that of nearly 3,000 colleges in the United States surveyed:
10% offered instruction completely online for Fall 2020
34% intended to run classes primarily online
21% in hybrid format
23% primarily in person
and 4% fully in-person
According to a report via BestColleges, nearly half (49%) of remote learners anticipated enrolling in online classes after their campuses return to normal operations. While online learning is shaping up to be a permanent feature of higher education, the financial cost remains a challenge for students.
According to BestColleges, online program graduates report that paying for college while minimizing student debt is a top concern. In fact, the cost of content in addition to tuition impacts financially disadvantaged students the most - approximately 65% of students will skip buying course content and textbooks because they cannot afford the additional cost.
This negatively impacts student outcomes because students do not have access to the resources they need to excel in their studies.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and in support of higher education, the United States Federal Government passed the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) to economically assist colleges and universities, and help provide financial relief to students.
HEERF II funding is intended to help students get access to the resources they need to excel in learning - including online learning.
Technology costs associated with transitioning to online learning are allowable under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) institutional portion.
According to the CRRSAA institutional portion, you can invest in technology solutions that provide digital content resources to faculty and students. This kind of support can be a game-changer for your students.
All students need access to the texts they need to succeed, both in the classroom and remotely, yet print copies and digital options can be too costly, especially for those students who have been economically impacted by the pandemic.

The pandemic has brought unprecedented attention to the issue of accessibility of educational content. As schools moved rapidly online last year, inequities in students’ access to the material they need for academic success became more apparent to institutions and faculty. Especially with the added difficulties of economic instability that the pandemic brought with it, access to learning content has become an urgent issue of equity and inclusion.
