Remote learning provides an array of possibilities to both learners and educational providers, including design options to address the threats brought about by the pandemic. However, it also presents challenges in its implementation, particularly in its administration and delivery, as most sectors have not fully adapted to remote learning as a platform. Issues about costs, availability of equipment, misuse of technology, coupled with the resistance of students, instructors, and administrators, are just some of the problems encountered. This resistance leads to questions about the users’ awareness of the potential security risks and the guarantee of their privacy. These concerns further challenge the overall quality of remote learning. On the other hand, remote learning provides opportunities to improve school systems, interconnectivity, teamwork, and stakeholder engagement to ensure effective programs. It also offers a way to develop appropriate arrangements to provide a safe and secure learning environment during the pandemic.
