FEATURED RESEARCH

Find out what is on the minds of college students as they prepare for the 2020-21 school year.

Key findings:

A new research study from Chegg reveals how students are adapting to the new normal. These are among the findings of a survey of 1,145 two-year and four-year US undergraduates aged 18 and over that was conducted during the first two weeks of June by the polling organisation Dynata on behalf of Chegg in collaboration with Arizona State University.

  • Over two-thirds (68%) of US undergraduates said they would welcome at least some degree of online tuition post-pandemic.
  • Over a third (39%) said their academic performance was unaffected by the switch to remote learning.
  • Sixty-one percent said when properly designed online courses can be just as legitimate as face-to-face courses.
  • 68% of students with no prior online learning experience said the transition to online classes made learning in their classes more difficult, however this fell to 58% for those with prior online learning experience.
  • 77% of students want better communication and 76% want better planning for online courses.
  • Despite the disruption, this did not affect study time for most students, with 59% saying they spent as much time or more time on their courses online.
