The far-reaching effects of the COVID-19 pandemic globally are undeniable. However, the pandemic has also provided education with a unique opportunity to grow and develop. In the past year, the development and adoption of a multitude of learning strategies and course delivery models has grown exponentially, as educators all around the world grapple with delivering instruction within the confines of the pandemic restrictions.

As education progresses in a post-pandemic period of re-integration and reduced restrictions, educators can explore how their courses can develop within this new education framework. We took the time to explore the various aspects of content delivery – What it is, why educators can consider using them, and what are the potential shortfalls of implementing such delivery modes.

To further assist in the decision-making process, a matrix has also been developed based on six key course considerations to help recommend the most suitable course delivery mode for your course!
