Abstract

Shifting to remote learning during times of a crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, is very different from well-planned online learning. This paper highlights the experience of shifting to remote learning and outlines lessons learned from the experience. The COVID-19 pandemic brought a wholly new educational context, which uncovered problems such as; course delivery & assessment; communication & misinformation; and technology limitations. This highlights a gap in research on rapid mid-term shift to remote learning in times of a crisis. There are plenty of resources for Information Systems education to draw lessons for effective online learning practices. However, there is limited research on remote learning in response to a crisis, such as COVID-19. This paper presents a case study at Bournemouth University, in which a Business Systems Analysis and Design (BSAD) course was moved to remote learning during COVID-19. The results reflect on the importance of learning focus, students focus, and learning resource focus for remote learning. This includes activities to promote effective communication and information resources, student engagement and support, and remote course delivery and assessment. All these activities are essential elements in a rapid shift from blended learning to remote learning during a crisis, such as COVID-19.
