NEW YORK, March 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- 55% of parents view e-learning more, or significantly more, favorably now than before the pandemic -- according to a new study by Learnopoly.
The survey found that 61% of parents were satisfied with e-learning, however 52% expressed concern that their child had missed out on social interaction.
Learnopoly polled a representative sample of 500 parents whose children were between the ages 4-18 and had experienced e-learning during the pandemic.
The survey investigated parents' attitudes toward their children e-learning during COVID restrictions, factors influencing satisfaction, and what parents thought schools should do to help children get back to school.
Experience of remote learning: the pandemic was the first time 88% of children had experienced remote learning. Of those with prior experience, only 30% had done so on a regular basis (4% of the total).
Changing attitudes: the majority of parents are satisfied with e-learning (61%), view it more favorably now than before the pandemic (55%), and would welcome more e-learning in some form in the future (58%).
Drivers of satisfaction: the main drivers of satisfaction were that their child liked e-learning (55%) and that parents were able to have a more active role in their child's education (53%). The fact that parents felt there were fewer distractions at home than in school (34%) was closely followed by feelings that their child had progressed faster at home (33%).
Top concerns: 52% of parents worried that their child had lost out on social aspects of school, 35% were concerned that their child now needs to catch up on lost learning, and 25% felt their child had fallen behind their peers.
Homeschooling: as a result of their experience of e-learning during the pandemic, 50% of parents now view homeschooling more favorably, or significantly more favorably, than before the pandemic, while 28% have not altered their view of homeschooling.
Productivity: 60% of parents indicated that they themselves have been less productive while their child has been e-learning.
School support after reopening: 38% of parents favoured schools offering students more tutoring and more opportunities for social interaction on return to school. There was much less support for shortening upcoming holidays (17%) or having the option to repeat a year (13%).
