The pivot to alternate forms of instruction during the COVID-19 pandemic has caused great concern for educators, parents, and students alike. An Australian study published in the Review of Educational Research in early 2021 finds that asynchronous video instruction at the university level has some definite advantages over the usual forms of instruction and even shows improvement in average test scores, especially when used as a supplement to existing content.

Thomas Arnett examines whether the forced adoption of online learning during the pandemic will move the needle closer to student-centered learning. While the jury is still out, a good mix of asynchronous and synchronous online learning, when executed with appropriate materials and effective technologies, can have important benefits for both teachers and students. Leveraging technology properly and not just replicating classroom-based instruction via
video platforms can unlock new possibilities for how teachers can support their students during face-to-face time. Ultimately, it’s encouraging to see educators discovering ways to use online learning to make instruction more student-centered today and in the future. Read..
