The Impact of Coronavirus on Online Learning and Remote Work

On this episode of MarketScale Mornings, Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin and host Tyler Kern were joined by MarketScale Senior Instructional Designer Brian Runo to discuss the capabilities of online learning and remote work in helping businesses, universities and more be agile in the face of coronavirus-related disruptions.

Topics included opportunities and challenges on both sides of the equation, as these institutions and companies scramble to remain productive and online solutions providers try to keep pace, strategies for success in the face of being forced to go remote, and more.
Runo, who brings a depth of experience in instructional design to his role at MarketScale, said the biggest challenge comes in deploying solutions that actually produce results.

“Right now, the quick-and-easy solution that faculty members, professors and businesspeople can deploy to get their courses out there is just to record a video of themselves. … That doesn’t follow best practices for instructional design,” Runo said. “It’s not going to be the best online class that it could be, but reutilizing those materials is going to allow you to have those lectures out.”

Runo also labeled increasing student engagement and effectively communicating as significant challenges, though using this out-of-the-blue challenge to learn how to become more flexible and proactive in the future could eventually ease that strain.MarketScale Mornings: The Impact of Coronavirus on Online Learning and Remote Work
