Adapting to the Digital Classroom: Challenges and Creativity in Online Learning

Amna Khaliq, University of Fredericton (Canada)


This study focuses on the growth opportunities of online education by delving into the challenges and creative aspects identified by professors and students. This symbiotic relationship is vital to online learning, creating effective communication, emphasizing practical skills, and unlocking students' potential. The research paper employs a phenomenological qualitative research approach, interviewing eighteen faculty members in Canada who respond to the two interview questions. This is compared with recent literature reviews to comprehend the challenges and opportunities presented by online education during and after the post-COVID-19 pandemic. The paper suggests that active engagement, reviewing recorded lectures, adapting to mobile learning, minimizing multitasking, and increasing interactive assignments are necessary to foster students' academic and professional development.
