COVID-19 is changing how the world works. Social Distancing and other measures that are in place to keep us safe are crucial in minimizing the potential spread of this invisible threat. However, this has created new and unexpected challenges for many colleges and universities in maintaining a normal operational routine. How well we adapt and navigate these hurdles will play a crucial role in our ability to ride through this tough period.
One thing for certain, any solutions, ideas, and processes that are implemented will probably involve words like “remote”, “online” and “digital” which in our opinion may be part of the new normal in daily operations for colleges going forward. Some of the key challenges that a college will encounter in navigating a remote-friendly operation include:
- Remote Admissions and Financial Aid
- Distance-learning and grading processes
- Maintaining student engagement and interactions
- Accurate attendance tracking
- Grading of practical work
