Q: How do I frame objectives regarding online education during COVID-19?
Hello Siya – Welcome to the forum!
The area of your study is quite relevant – as the COVID-19 crisis has led to a change in how learning is conducted, from being entirely in the classroom or a blend of classroom and online learning to moving entirely online (at least for the foreseeable future).
However, it’s presently not a ‘topic’ per se, as it needs to be focused. You need to determine what exactly you wish to study about online education during the COVID-19 crisis, such as how effective it is, the challenges faced, and so on. Once you are focused about the topic, it should be easier to frame the objectives.
Also, you will be able to begin working on the objectives once you have done a comprehensive literature search in the area. This will uncover gaps or directions that you may wish to explore in your study.
For more information on the elements discussed above, you may refer to the following resources:
