2020 CHLOE 5 Special Report

CHLOE 5: The Pivot to Remote Teaching in Spring 2020 and Its Impact

In response to this year’s unprecedented shift to remote learning, Quality Matters and Eduventures® Research issued a special edition of the annual Changing Landscape of Online Education (CHLOE) Survey. The special survey was administered to 308 chief online officers (COO) representing 2- and 4-year public, private and for-profit institutions.

According to the findings, over 80% of COOs are working on specific improvement to remote learning plans, including conversion to true online learning:

  • Thirteen percent improving remote instruction courses that need it 
  • Thirty-five percent planning incremental improvement for all remote instruction courses
  • Eighteen percent gradually converting remote instruction courses to fully online learning
  • Seventeen percent converting all remote instruction courses to fully online learning

The 40-page report also provides insight into the successes, challenges and priorities for quality improvement related to remote learning, including the tools and technologies deployed.

The CHLOE 6 Survey — to be administered in early 2021 — will focus on one topic or a short list of topics. If you are a COO and wish to participate in the next CHLOE Survey, or if you wish to nominate the COO at your institution, please include that information on the download form and/or contact QM’s Manager of Research & Development Barbra Burch.
