The Upside of Online Learning
Recorded classes are one feature of virtual education that students came to love

While MBA students were generally disappointed with the shift to online learning, there are some features of virtual classes they liked—and want to see continued even after in- person instruction resumes, a Bloomberg Businessweek survey of MBA students shows.

When asked to suggest things schools should keep doing after a return to physical classes, more than 11.5% of the surveyed students said that classes should be recorded so they could rewatch them, according to the Businessweek analysis.

Typical was Adhiraj Didwania, a student at IE Business School in Madrid. He’s been taking classes from his home in Kolkata, India, since March, and he plans to become a product manager at a large technology company when he graduates. Didwania wrote, “Record all classes and share the recordings after class.” In a follow-up interview, he said, “For subjects or topics that are important to me, it would be great to go back and view critical portions again in case I need a future reference.”
