E-learning during COVID-19: Social Sciences MA Programs vs Mathematics MS Program
Abstract: In this study, students’ performance data from 4 graduate programs in social sciences and a graduate mathematics program for the spring semesters of 2019, 2020 and 2021 were collected and analyzed. Due to COVID-19, all courses were delivered remotely in the latter half of the spring semester of 2020. Different e-learning methods were used in these different fields. The results showed that when the right course delivery methods were implemented, the COVID-19 impacts on the students’ performance were minimal. Based on this study, recommendations were made on teaching and learning graduate level courses.
