If the second year of the pandemic for schools coincided with the return of traditional, face-to-face lessons, the same cannot be said for universities. In fact, in universities, even the current academic year was dominated by Dad: 2 out of 5 university students say they attended the lessons mainly at a distance, even voluntarily. And it is easy to imagine that, even in the future, e-learning will remain an option available to young people, by now accustomed to the new way of learning.
A factor, this, that it could significantly change their post-graduate choices, soon leading to the definitive consecration of universities that operate exclusively online. At least that’s what transpires from the results of the “Telematic University” Observatory, created by the student portal Skuola.net in collaboration with the CFU – University Training Center. Between the approx 4,000 high school pupils surveyed who, in their future, see enrollment in a degree course, more than 1 in 2 thinks that they will also evaluate the offer of these realities. And nearly 1 in 10 put them high on the options list.
This is a radical paradigm shift, given that in the past these universities were considered more by working students than by full-time students. But it is not only Dad that is driving the growth in consensus of “telematics”. She certainly made her part of her, clearing the concept of distance learning: it is no coincidence that 2 out of 3 students say they have matured their thinking by analyzing above all the way in which the world of school and university have responded to the emergency.
Telematic universities, the reasons for choosing them
There are, however, other keywords that could make a difference in the final choice. The most common? “Quality of life” and “Savings”. In the ranking of the reasons that, in the minds of aspiring freshmen, shift the balance in favor of online universities, in the first position – with 30% of the votes – we find, in fact, both the possibility of studying in the preferred place and time and the possibility of cutting down those ancillary costs that weigh on many university students (trips, off-site life, etc.) or trivially of minimize the cost of books (usually the “telematics” also provide the study materials).
But there is no lack of those who declare themselves interested because they are convinced that studying at a distance helps the environment by reducing emissions from travel and paper production (8%) or because they believe that the study method is much better than the traditional one (6%). Only 7% would opt for telematics because they are attracted by an allegedly less difficult prospect of their studies.
E-learning, for students an excellent solution for the future of education
At the center, therefore, there is not the search for a degree as a gift but the improvement of individual well-being. Still managing to keep the level of training received high. More generally, in fact, most secondary school pupils are convinced of the goodness of e-learning as a teaching model. For 56% it can very well be adapted to the needs of all students; for 63% it can ensure a good quality of learning. As well as The idea that an online degree has less value than “traditional” ones is losing strength: 1 out of 2 say they disagree with this vision, which is considered the result of an outdated cliché.
A judgment, what future graduates have made of “telematic” universities, also supported by those who are currently engaged in academic training. The Observatory, in fact, asked about 1,000 university students to draw up an assessment of the last two years, mainly lived “at a distance”. Well, among those enrolled in online universities, the vast majority (85%) are satisfied – 35% are “very satisfied” – with how their university has managed teaching. And, for a possible post-graduate course (master, doctorate, etc.), as many as 7 out of 10 already think of confirming the choice.
The same cannot be said for those who have experienced the pandemic while studying in a traditional university. Here the level of satisfaction collapses: only 75% (ten percentage points less than in the world of “telematics”) promotes the Dad created in emergency by their own university and just 16% (a percentage that is halved compared to that found among students enrolled in online universities) appears ” very satisfied”. A real problem considering that, as anticipated, a large portion of them (42%) have set foot in the faculty little or nothing, almost always attending remotely.
There are those who think of moving from the “traditional” university to the telematic one
But there is more. Staying on the students of traditional universities, many (30%) have even thought about changing direction during construction, switching to their telematic counterparts. Why didn’t they do it? More for organizational reasons than for blazon: most say that too many things should have changed, many others due to the lack of their degree course in “telematics”, still others out of laziness. Going to feed the large group (44%) of girls and boys who, to date, feel penalized – 33% “fairly, 11%” definitely “- by having attended a type of university in this historical period. always based on the “frontal” relationship between students and professors, therefore not used to riding new technologies.
“Online learning has now freed itself from that certain mistrust that prevailed when distance learning was a rarity which mostly used working students. Today, not only the world of schools and universities, but also that of work, have understood that the Internet can offer infinite opportunities. Provided that the tools and technologies used are adequate. The telematic universities, on this level, are definitely ahead, being able to boast an experience in the field that is not reduced to the years of the pandemic. But, as the survey reveals, students also appreciate the flexibility of hours or the savings in travel and equipment that these facilities can guarantee. Also because despite the possibility of returning to attend lessons face to face, in traditional universities many have preferred to attend lessons mainly at a distance “underlines Daniele Grassucci, director of Skuola.net.
“The results that emerged from the Observatory have put pen to paper and given new relevance to the testimonies of the many people who every day guide us in choosing the most suitable Telematic University for them. In fact, the personalization and flexibility of teaching are of fundamental importance for most aspiring e-learners, especially in a society like today’s where there is always a rush to meet all the commitments. In this sense, the Telematic Universities allow students to take a break from the daily frenzy to dedicate themselves to building their own future, all without giving up a high-level education “thus Linda Pavia, Sole Administrator of the University Training Center.
