In a Time of Crisis, Students Need Open Educational Resources More Than Ever- Michelson, 2020 MM

The education sector has transformed dramatically over the last month as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. UNESCO estimates that over half of the world’s students are no longer attending in-person schooling due to social distancing guidelines. Here in the Golden State, the entire California Community College system has shifted to online instruction. Not only are students dealing with this abrupt pedagogical change, they are also facing real financial distress from lost wages, unemployment, and a looming pandemic triggered recession. Now more than ever, the educational space needs to step up their support for students and faculty.
