Impressions of Online Education: Dutch Students

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 15 April May 10 2020

September 2020

The Dutch Student Union LSVB has published a report: “Onderwijs op Afstand” (in Dutch) on how Dutch students perceive and rate the move to online education as a result of COVID-19. Following the less desirable practice in social sciences, the LSVB – noting that its sample was not random and that the study is exploratory – nonetheless feels free to draw general conclusions from its survey.

Accessibility of academic teachers and freedom to organise your time and facilities are rated most positive in the survey. But bandwidth issues, social interaction and less effective instruction are among the issues seen as problematic by more of the responding students.
