As an extraordinary semester wraps up, we check in with three undergraduate students from Illinois State about their experiences learning in the age of COVID-19.  They highlight what’s worked in their classes this semester, what instructors have done to help them to succeed, and how the new tools we’ve all had to embrace – things like Zoom, recorded lectures, and other apps – have actually offered some expanded opportunities. They also explore some surprising ways they connect with other students. Plus, they weigh in on synchronous versus asynchronous learning and how those insights have impacted their choices of classes for the spring semester.
