Here are my 2 main supporting reasons:

1. The inequity in accessing the online courses of students

Even though all types of education can be achieved everywhere, due to the digitalization era, some students cannot afford proper environment to access the online courses. (e.g. gadgets with fully available internet connection, items required to attend a specialized course, a study atmosphere at home, and many)

Even if the first problem was solved, the second problem wouldn't disappear as well.

2. Art utilizes interactions.

I believe the online courses never fulfill the learning objectives. Let's acknowledge some of the specifically related problems:
a) How can you run an orchestra band while you are sitting there alone with only one trumpet?
b) How can you learn a correct dance step without a mirror to check your dance move or/and a teacher to interact and guide you right away?
c) How can you create a sculpture by not touching clay and using its technical tools?
d) etc.

Regarding the covid-19, here are some solutions I recognized after visiting some schools and universities (and I hope that Chulalongkorn University, the number 1 University in Thailand, can follow along with the regulations):

1. A course is separated into 2 parts: a) an online lecture for theoretical sessions and b) an interacting workshop for practical sessions

2. If a covid-19 still bother your determination, the first rule can be prevented by grouping student sections into even smaller groups. For example, according to Assumption College Samutprakan, a first week of a month will allow M.6 students to attend on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and M.4 and M.5 students to attend on Tuesday and Thursday. Then the study days of each group will switch in the following week. The whole semester keeps running like this.

3. The social distancing still counts. All students must be verified their health conditions (e.g. body temperature check) at a particular gate(s) and wearing face shields if possible.

4. As I've heard that course fees are not fairly deducted, the university can spend the obvious income gap to clean up spaces during the days.

With that being said, online courses are good, but it cannot be utilized for every faculty and course because of too many drawbacks. Moreover, lots of other organizations have already found ways to overcome the current pandemic.

I hope that my suggested solutions would help the Chulalongkorn University to overcome covid-19 as soon as possible, to serve your students well.
