A Survey on the E-Learning Platforms Used During COVID-19
2020 11th IEEE Annual Information Technology, Electronics and Mobile Communication Conference (IEMCON), 4-7 Nov. 2020, Vancouver, BC, Canada
E-learning is globalized in a short period of time due to the physical distancing requirement for curbing the spread of COVID-19. There are two major challenges imposed by the migration from face-to-face learning to E-learning: live lecturing and lab sessions. In this survey, we studied the E-learning platforms used in the COVID-19 pandemic: learning management systems or course management systems, tools for live-lecturing and tools for lab sessions. We found that this migration is quite smooth with contemporary technologies and the Internet. Prescriptive suggestions are also provided for this migration. For the future trend of education, it is expected that E-learning will become a preferable education and learning style in the future, especially for self-study and life-long learning.
