The Covid-19 outbreak compelled us to make a quick shift from traditional to digital learning. The number of graduate students enrolled in online courses has climbed by 62 percent1, and this trend is expected to continue. The eLearning business was anticipated to increase dramatically in 2015, reaching $168.8 billion2 by 2018. Institutions that have disregarded this trend have been caught off guard when it comes to providing high-quality online education. It begs the issue of whether young and creative universities have fared better in the Covid-19 crisis.

Human psychology seeks to maintain its natural state of comfort. It’s easy to see why we’re resistant to change. In most cases, older adults are unable to adapt to new circumstances. Traditional organizations, on the other hand, have a stronger tendency to preserve their “approved” ways than younger organizations. Regardless of their tradition, the majority of firms have attempted to implement remote approaches. The abrupt change posed numerous obstacles, but in the end, 75% of schools agreed to go online in 2021.3 Younger universities, on the other hand, have already prepared the next generation of learners.

Online colleges invest in better-quality professors, teacher assistants, and online platforms rather than having a budget for physical necessities. As a result, their equipment has better reacted to the Covid-19 problem. 41% of students in 2020 believed that the quality of their college-level online learning experience was far superior to that of physical classroom learning.4

We, the next generation, understand that 21st-century skills and lifelong learning requirements are critical to the future of education. Differential survival necessitates an open mind. The requirements and difficulties will continue to evolve over time, and we are committed to keeping up with the latest advances.
