Due to the current COVID-19 virus, schools worldwide are being closed and going online. We are all aware that remote learning has never been done before for nursing courses at Adelphi University, and many adjustments to the learning environment/experience needed to be put in place. Many students agree that remote learning is vastly different than in-person learning. Not only is it more time consuming, but we are also responsible for the material that we primarily teach to ourselves. Many professors have not been teaching at class time, but rather uploading Panoptos and voice-overs of various PowerPoints. The lack of effort on their part requires an abnormal increase of effort on our part.  A class that lasts an hour and forty minutes in person now requires us to listen to a Panopto that is three hours in length on the very same material. Before, we were provided with animated lectures, visual learning tools, and face to face interactions with our professors in return for our tuition. This is no longer so. To add, we are no longer being given a set location or time to conduct our studies. Before this pandemic, we had classrooms, libraries, and countless study locations on campus. Now we are compelled to learning from home, where our families are. Additionally, our clinical experience has been severely compromised since students are no longer allowed in hospitals, which is part of our tuition rate. All these elements contribute to an extremely difficult learning experience. Therefore, we kindly request a tuition reduction because we are no longer granted the in-person learning experience that was promised. Many universities and colleges are refunding or adjusting tuition rates because they understand that online remote classes do not offer the same learning environment as on-campus. We are grateful for the changes that have been implemented by Adelphi University to keep us safe. However, such changes don’t enhance our learning but rather simply make the learning process possible.
