With the introduction of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, many universities across the globe have opted to shift the delivery of education away from traditional brick and mortar institutions. Instead, a significant number of them have positioned their academic offerings to take place mostly, if not entirely, online. As such, the area of study in which this research takes place in is the field of education. Specifically, the topic of my study seeks to understand the experiences and attitudes of distance education students as they undergo participation in online university-level education during the 2020/2021 COVID-19 pandemic.
