The threat to universities from the coronavirus pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic forces countries to take strict measures. Universities fear on campus outbreaks. Such outbreaks could create problems with academic procedures. However, there is a very viable alternative to disruptions which threaten universities with closures. The alternative is online learning. Online learning is invincible by diseases, extreme weather phenomena, or social unrest. Therefore, the development of the Internet and technological advances have turned online learning into the new big player in education.
It is flexible, affordable and accessible to almost everyone. Sick students can continue with their studies, new mothers can study while on maternity leave, working professionals can earn higher degrees. Specifically, should the majority be quarantined to contain the spread of the virus, online learning can be a useful distraction; a way to use quarantine time creatively; an opportunity to learn or research interesting things that we never have time to explore; or a way too earn a new qualification to improve your career prospects.
