WASHINGTON — Around 51 percent of students lack consistent access to high-speed Internet and WiFi, according to a new survey from Visual Objects, an online guide for B2B service providers.
Another 52 percent of students think cheating will rise due to online learning, the survey found.
This comes in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic where it is estimated about 63 percent of students intend to take online classes this fall.
Despite expected issues of cheating and technology accessibility, 55 percent of students surveyed are comfortable taking online courses. Additionally, 47 percent of students believe remote learning will not affect their grades.
“Students are embracing the flexibility of self-paced online learning and many are already well-versed in the technologies required,” the survey noted.
Visual Objects surveyed 400 high school and college students about online education trends and adapting to remote learning.
