Abstract

The Global Education landscape has dramatically changed in the past few months due to the spread of the Corona Virus, otherwise known as COVID-19. The article highlights the pulse of prospective students and Educational Institutions throughout this crisis.

 The article explores the findings, including the impact on student’s careers, online learning offerings, campus management and a range of other areas. Students worldwide have been dramatically impacted by the spread of the Corona Virus, from travel restrictions to social distancing, isolation measures, quarantines, campus closures and border closures.

 Hence, the objective of the study is to assess the impact of Global Education and to determine the various benefits, challenges and reasons on Virtual Education against the challenging enigma. The COVID-19. Network issues, lack of awareness and lack of training were also stated as a challenging enigma; less attendance and lack of interaction were found to be the significant drawbacks too. Above all, the study also suggested ways to overcome the challenges. “Various studies have been conducted where it appears that different institutions have been adopting and doing well with this new learning environment” (Oblinger and Kidwell, 2000).

 Thus the COVID-19 changes have brought a promising future of learning and the accelerated changes in modes of delivering quality education. Global learning can continue to be integrated into classes, curricular and co-curricular activities and programs.
