Universities and the challenge of online learning

The results of university student experience ratings including those recently released in Australia (Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching) have shown a large drop in the learning experience students have received over the last year in many institutions. Universities and some commentators have been quick to raise the global pandemic as the major contributing factor to this significant decrease. Although this is undoubtedly the case for a number of reasons, online learning seems to be under particular fire as a result and is in danger of becoming collateral damage. So has the shift to predominantly online provision over the last year really been the cause of such student unhappiness? We believe it is not the move to online that is the issue, but rather the speed and nature of the move.
