Since COVID appeared many educational institutions were obliged to move their activities to online platforms, thus kicking off a grandiose digitalization process by accelerating the innovation in how we work and study.
Most of us managed to transition and not only be successful but even more efficient at our tasks than before. So, where is the hold up in some universities not offering distance learning programs alternatives? Is there a stigma or does online education provide, indeed, less quality knowledge transfer? Why?
Relevant answer
Answer
Online learning is compromised by what Tim brought up, "you get what you put into it". I have students who simply think they can wing it through the course. They do not think it is important to read announcements, have no understanding of how to read directions and follow them, and are not able to write a complete sentence, or a paragraph. This is at the undergraduate and graduate levels. As an online course designer and faculty, and former online program director, I have seen many things. Currently, I am doing research and through this, everything I have been appalled at, I am seeing in research and saying to myself, "Yes"!
There is an art to creating online courses and running online programs and one needs to understand what takes place physiologically in the brain when students are in online learning environments. Educational neuropsychology is a concept that should be heeded in course design, as well as teaching. In addition, the course designer needs to understand how one learns in an online environment. Educational neuropsychology is an important learning theory that designers and university directors should be considering when they manage their courses, as well as training faculty. The content is fine, the course designer however needs to understand how to present it in the course management system. One does not take the syllabus and fit it into the course management system.
In addition, there are assumptions that undergraduates are computer savvy and this is not the case. They might be savvy with their iPhones, but course management systems do not run well on an iPhone. Students who come to higher education in any environment are not prepared for that higher level of learning. They think they are entering Grade 13, and they are not, they are entering Grade 23, and this is a big jump. Therefore, student preparedness for higher education is lacking. And, it is not so much the content, but rather how the content is presented. Reading comprehension online is quite different than using a hard copy. Online learning requires the student to be self-directed. They cannot wing the course, they need to read announcements and need to know when they do not know and ask for help; most, rarely do

Dear Prof. Abdelfatah!
May I state I am interested. Still, may I state I am not an IT - specialist. My focus is on digital supply chain management:

In face-to-face teaching, teacher training is an essential task. Trainings are organized as well as refresher sessions are scheduled to train teachers of new teaching tools and methods. In your opinion, is this training also essential in online education/learning?
Relevant answer
Answer
Let me point to the following negative opinion related to the distance learning and education. Coronavirus Diseases (COVID-19) increase the black market of education. Look around you and count how many black offices for solving the exams and assignments are there.
From my point of view, e-learning alone will not succeed without traditional learning. Furthermore, I see that e-learning hasn't achieved the desired aims or results for developing countries and traditional learning is better. This is because there are many black offices for solving exam questions!! These offices made online learning a trading stock that resembles the slave-market.
At least, the hybrid learning of both of them is better than the traditional one.
In any way, exams must be inside the educational institutes with the physical attendance of the students.

Dear RG members,
In your opinion, what is the best teaching method in a distance learning context?
1. Problem-based learning (PBL).
2. Programmed learning or guided learning: when the learner can learn a set of learning concepts according to the plan established by the teacher or the course designer (fixed learning path).
3. Free learning: when the learner can learn a set of learning concepts according to his choice (free learning path, without any conditions).
Thank you for your contributions

Answer
I agree with Vernon Czelusniak's opinion that problem-based learning is the best method of online learning. Indeed, the most important aspect is its linkage to a specific professional organization. This is quite difficult to do, but over time we will get positive results.

Is there any available Questionnaire or tool for assessing effectiveness of Modular Distance Learning?
Relevant answer
Answer
Modular Distance Learning features individualized instruction that allows learners to use self-learning modules (SLMs). The process of self-assessment could be implemented with a simple Google Forms survey or questionnaire. Portfolios are also a good assessment tool for distance education. You could use a Learning Management System or cloud software such as OneNote or Google Classroom to set up a designated portfolio space for each student.

Question

Dear seniors and researchers,
Briefly introducing myself, I am a fourth year medical student from Indonesia. Currently, I am performing a multiple logistic regression on several possible factors affecting medical student preference toward distance learning in this pandemic era. Honestly, it is my first time in using logistic regression in my work, and I might encounter several confusing issues regarding this statistical procedure. I have selected 14 eligible covariates for multiple logistic regression according to its significant p-value (0.000) during their simple logistic regression. After including all of those 14 covariates to the model, the ExpB (odds ratio) of all 14 covariates become insignificant despite decent model (Good result of Omnibus test, R-squared, and Holmer and Lemeshow test). All of statistical procedure were performed in SPSS ver 22.
Regarding this issue, what should I do in responding those finding? Is it correct to interpret that there were no significant relationship between all of 14 covariates and dependent variable (student preference toward distance learning) simultaneously? Or is there any suggestion of appropriate technical steps in conducting multiple regression analysis?
Thank You
Relevant answer
Answer
I'm assuming the pairs have correlation coefficient >= 0.7 (r=0.07 suggests little correlation).
If you have 3 distinct pairs, I would suggest eliminating one variable from each pair leaving the most significant ones in the set. After that, you can proceed with a stepwise regression, if needed.
Another possible solution would be implementing a dimension reduction technique (i.e. principal component analysis) to reduce the number of predicting factors.
If you require any further information, let me know.
Best wishes,

Yes of course : I think that:
1. Hybrid teaching: see the link: https://resources.owllabs.com/blog/hybrid-learning . It is an educational model where some students attend class in-person, while others join the class virtually from home. Educators teach remote and in-person students at the same time using tools like video conferencing hardware and software.
2. Online teaching: the process of educating others on virtual platforms. See link: https://www.teachmint.com/glossary/o/online-teaching/
3. Distance learning: see link: . https://tophat.com/glossary/d/distance-learning/ students educate themselves without in-person interaction among peers or an instructor. ... Distance learning is a form of online learning since it almost always occurs over the internet. Distance learning refers to students educating themselves remotely, usually completed online.

University education is beyond academic benefits. It gives students a chance to develop attitude and skills that give them courage, ability to work with others and a better understanding of himself and the entire world around them. It is during University years that a person gets to understand his/her identity, role, and dreams. To become what you want to be, you need not only formal education but also real-life experience and opportunities for self-development.
How much of this is missing in these cruel times of eLearning & social distancing?

How can Artificial Intelligence be used in education? Daniele Di Mitri is working on this at the DIPF I Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education. An interview about distance learning, digital teaching beyond video conferences, and why we should not only use Artificial Intelligence to display suitable films or advertisements.
Daniele Di Mitri is currently applying as an AI Newcomer 2021, called by the German Informatics Society. You can support his nomination here.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Daniele! Read the interview. Interesting, and I am myself thinking and researching in similar paths. For me, the conceptual framework that Luciano Floridi is setting up is very interesting and useful. Among many other distinctions, he makes a difference between ICTs that decreases information friction (which is a project old as writing at least continuing with print, TV, Internet etc) and ICTs that processes information outside biological brains (like computer programs, algorithms and robots). Education ICTs of the former kind are phenomena like distance-, e-, online and blended learning). The information-processing kind of ICTs is rather new, Floridi attributes the idea origin to Turing. Education applications arecoming up, like learning analytics and adaptive learning or as you mention plagiarism control (check also MITs automatic essay grader and maybe the older UCLA Calibrated Peer Review - which is interesting in the division of tasks between human and ICTs).
So, from using Floridi’s philosophy (or tech history-part of it) I draw the conclusion that ICTs in education up till now has mostly been the continuation of an old project decrease of information friction) although speeded up alot with digital ICTs, but what is characteristic and new with digital ICTs is the more independent information processing. So the real digital revolution in education can in this way barely be said to have started yet...
If interested in these perspectives, read Floridi and check his youtube channel. His writings on education are not many, he is so busy with his general philosophy and applying it on other fields. In my 2017 thesis (which is mainly about how to understandthe ”blended” and the diminished information friction), I discuss it in ch 7 and 8 I think. I also have a conference paper on this issue. The coauthored paper ”Blended learning, the new normal and emerging technologies” also discusses Floridi in education shortly. All 3 attached.

Distance education is a new experience for us in developing countries, but it was the only alternative to continuing the educational process in light of the epidemic and healthy urbanization to preserve the health and lives of students and professors, and to be fair, despite it being a new experience, but it somewhat succeeded in The delivery of academic courses to the students, and of course, this depends on the selection of the various and effective methods by the professors. But with regard to practical subjects and laboratories, I do not agree that it was able to achieve the same result with theoretical subjects because the practical subjects need to be trained on devices and other materials, so there is still a gap in this area. But on the other hand, distance education was an inevitable decision to continue the educational process, and I think that the intense effort made by the teachers has given its results somewhat.

We have conducted a manuscript to assess the Distant learning in Physical Therapy Education during the COVID-19 outbreak. The study design was cross-sectional study and was reported according STROBE statement.
The study evaluates the correlated factor and predictors for student satisfaction and quality of learning. The main outcome was Distance Education Learning Environments Survey (DELES).
We have submitted the manuscript for a number of Education journals. They rejected the manuscript because the STROBE design is not appropriate for education journals style.
Any suggested journals that are interest in physical therapy education or health education and follow the medical journals reporting guidelines?

I used short graded online review quizzes at the beginning of each session to help students to master the core content.

Live face to face learning is more fruitful than the distance electronic learning.
It is the live role of the teacher which makes the great difference. The teacher conducts much more than the scientific information. The teachers brings also the human values with them in the classroom. Much more depth of understanding is accomplished by the live presence of the teacher.

Distinguished peers,
The need and demand for online learning is on the rise, partially owing to political and healthcare related issues. Many online courses have been developed to provide interactive courses with user forums or social media discussions to support community interactions among students, professors, and teaching assistants (TAs). Some platforms also provide immediate feedback to quick quizzes, assignments etc.
As there is a multitude of courses offered by numerous education institutions, it is often difficult to select the best or the most appropriate.
I would like some feedback in this regards. Which courses have you taken? Which institution provided the course? Which platform was used? Were the learning out comes achieved? Is this method of teaching practical and viable? Any recommendations?
Thank you for your feedback,

Answer
Aftab Amin I am not sure there is one size fits all for many of the answers. The tools may depend on the instructor's experience, the discipline of the students, and the availability of the LMS system. Regarding LMS's, I am afraid the Pandemic has solidified some of those connections, so my suspicion is that most institutions are "all-in" whatever their current LMS happens to be. Regarding other items, I guess it depends on how you weight the criteria. Is it price, integration with existing systems, ease of use etc?
Recently I have had to cross boundaries between Canvas and Sakai courses (see below for comparison). In terms of recommendations, the key issue here is transfer not necessarily content. Teacher experience and class norms may be key here. Some Harvard classes that are based on case studies and discussions have migrated almost entirely to Zoom and breakout rooms (the norms of their environment) where other classes have migrated entirely to asynchronous modalities to provide flexibilities to either mobile or displaced students in terms of geography.

In times of pandemic, distance learning has gained strength. What can teachers do to make distance classes more attractive to students?
Relevant answer
Answer
In my opinion, distance courses, to be more attractive, must offer more flexibility and suppleness to the learner. For this purpose, the courses can be offered in synchronous or asynchronous mode. In a synchronous course, the student, regardless of where he is, can connect to the course platform at the same time as the teacher. This is the formula that most closely resembles classroom instruction. However, the student has the option of watching the session later, which allows more flexibility than in class. The asynchronous course, on the other hand, allows the student to do the course at his convenience during the week. Educational activities can take different forms, such as forums, quizzes, etc. This formula gives the student even more flexibility, but also requires more organization and discipline than if he took classes in class.
In addition, other advice is also recommended in this regard, including:
- Use labels to orient the students well, explain the educational objectives of each sequence and each activity, then clearly describe the instructions for the activities.
- Use activities to stimulate the learner's thinking, encourage interaction, sharing and collective production.
- Play on pleasure, develop fun and interactive activities.
- Illustrate the title of a course with an image inserted in the section, this can make it more attractive.
- Encourage exchanges between participants, especially between students, so that they actively participate in the course.
-To make it easier to read a document or an activity: choose a font, sans serif typography, choose a font size, a large font, use color for course keywords, bold of the font to highlight the words, the key ideas.
- Propose a discussion forum allowing students to ask questions, to address organizational elements, to exchange around concepts mentioned in class ... The forum must be moderated and you intervene to provide answers, additional information ... when the discussions are closed or to revive the debates.
- etc.

Around the world, mainly smart working and home working represent two key responses that people and organizations prompted to give continuity to their services, while respecting social distancing. Among many jobs, teaching trusts on web platforms, but they are just means, though they offer some tools for engaging students, such as quiz apps, video recording, sharing files and channels for discussions.
Looking at educational issue, e-learning and distance learning are two differents contexts where teaching occurs. The first can be added to traditional education too, especially for training people in organizational contexts. Distance learning may work for teaching at the university, since students are skilled enough to be committed to understanding arguments and taking exams. However, interactions, labs, q&a sessions are challenging given the tendency of the means to be asynchronous.
Besides commenting my slides and journal articles, I mostly give them cases and papers to study at home, so to use their analysis as a base for discussion during the following lectures. Mainly, this can be done with master students. Also, some students, most of the time undergraduate, watch the recorded video of the lectures afterwards. No matter the content of the lecture, mainly watching videos and cutting the interactions, including taking notes, reduces the effectiveness of attending. This habit may be caused by a "youtube" alike interactions with everything is a video of a person speaking and commenting slides and by a inherent feature of the means itself. Platforms allows to "pause" attending (turning off mic and cam or the sound) due to an incoming email, a facebook message, a call and whatever is happening at home. Things that normally we completely "freeze" when attending classes, watching movies at the cinema and so on. In fact, attending requires a more focused and demanding engagement.
What I'm asking is the following.
How to increase interactions and effectiveness of distance education in the context of University, where the tradition is being physically present in the same room and the whole course is designed in that way? What kind of methodologies can be adopted to sustain interactions and discourage a "youtube" alike mindset.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Vincenzo Vignieri, Great Discussion. I completely agree all the discussion above your question. I also think that Online Education/ Distance Education is more suitable for University students than high school/secondary school students. However, what I believe from my observations is that high school/secondary school, even primary school students can adopt to distance learning technology faster than university students, since they are born in technology. The question.. How can we improve interactions and discourage a "youtube" alike mindset is just doing what YouTube does not. Students can not communicate with YouTube videos, they have to listen, that is the only possibility . However in Online Courses, if we improve interactivity, by asking a background knowledge in our course or a second time, the communication will be more alive for students than just talking by yourself.

Answer
This will not be easy. The countries that still have tuition-free education are few and mostly found in Europe, you can see them here https://www.study.eu/article/study-in-europe-for-free-or-low-tuition-fees . If you come from a non-EU/EEA-country there often are fees, but sometimes lower, in these countries. For participation, you also have to qualify for a student visa for that country as a non-EU/EEA citizen, which involves showing that you have funds enough also for supporting yourself for living costs. In the category of non-tuition master programmes, there are almost no "distance educations" where you can remain in your home country. For master education, however, you can look for "Erasmus Mundus" university cooperations and master programmes. They often have, as part of the concept, some student places with a grant, enabling students from third countries to study,
For PhD candidate education, there are sometimes, as in Sweden, PhD student positions that you apply for, and if accepted, you have both tuition-free education and a monthly salary and a student visa for 4 years. it is like this in some other countries as well, as in other Nordic countries, Germany, Switzerland and Belgium. See this RG discussion https://www.researchgate.net/post/which_countries_offer_PhD_positions_as_paid_jobs_in_English
These PhD positions are advantageous, but not often "on distance", whatever that means. They can however sometimes be used in a half-flexible way. If you want a PhD "on distance", try Walden university
There is another option that may come close. The MOOC platforms have for long worked with nano-master, specialisations, micro-masters and similar course packages in interesting fields and certificates from these are often attractive for employers as a part of a CV. Not cost-free, but rather cheap, and fees are sometimes adapted after country economy. And, more and more, these platforms are offering also BSc and master programmes with ordinary credits and exams. Not free, but not very expensive, and with a lot of flexibility. begin here https://www.coursera.org/degrees and continue search other MOOC platforms as EdX, Futurelearn etc, and search them overall at classcentral.com.
There are also on some US universities online PhD and masters programmes, but they come with a cost - but sometimes cheaper than a campus option.
