Remote Synchronous Delivery: New Sustainable Delivery or a Stop-Gap Measure during Covid?

During the unprecedented circumstances of COVID-19, learning strategists were faced with overwhelming challenges to provide virtual education opportunities that are synonymous with physical on campus experiences. Most post-secondary institutions worldwide adopted a remote approach to implement asynchronous and/or synchronous delivery. This research investigated remote synchronous delivery (RSD) at University X where students and faculty meet within scheduled hours via online platform. For further investigation of the topic, several questions were set, how will remote synchronous delivery affect post secondary education? Does learning via RSD delivery provide full university and students’ life learning experience? Is RSD another model of learning or it is a middle method between to face-to-face and online? How can we be prepared to shift to an alternate learning methods? The research aim was to examine whether remote delivery is a sustainable method or an urgent solution for pandemic situation. Through literature review and observations, the research investigated the multi-layered challenges aligned with RSD, and expectations after end of the pandemic. The research predicted that remote delivery format will continue forward, however, it will require further new measures of implementation to sustain the integrity of educational process without compromising education quality and students’ preparedness for professional work environment.
