Suggestions for Moving Teaching Rapidly Online in the Face of the Corona Crisis

Research output: Working paperResearch


The Corona (COVID-19) virus outbreak has led many universities and other higher education institutions to close temporarily across the globe. In order not to disrupt exams and prolong students’ enrolment periods, some such institutions are exploring the option of delivering classes online. This short paper outlines ways to rapidly and inexpensively move courses online. Recommendations in this paper are based on principles from research into communities of inquiry (COI), as well as a tried and tested content structuring framework (SCATE) developed at a large British university. They are also based on my own experiences of leading online degree programmes and teaching online courses.
