Yet another year and the return to Colleges and Universities is actually a return to the bedroom and back online. This really is just a computer simulation of the real education experience.

There will be no boring, old lecturer with a PowerPoint from the 90’s – actually that won’t change. There won’t be a food court to waste time discussing how you will change the world for the better. There won’t be 100 people to chat to/chat up as Zoom isn’t that private.

Online learning is like a Western movie without John Wayne, it’s just not as good. Good luck with the screen work and hope that the lecturer doesn’t always use the mute button.
