This article discusses "a recent study by Educause, developed to examine the 'general trends' taking shape as institutions have made plans and preparations for fall education." It reports that "whereas in fall 2019 most institutions were offering one in five or fewer classes online, a year later that was flipped: A majority of schools were offering four in five or more courses online this fall." Additionally, classes in general have been 'hybridized' through the use of technology for video communication, lecture capture, and more. Some areas that could use more support include labs and co-curricular activities.
