Survey on Distance Learning

In the summer semester 2020 the academy– like all other Austrian universities – switched to distance learning due to the Covid-19 prevention measurements. Students and teachers experienced great and sudden changes. It was a concern of the academy to support teachers and students during this time as much as possible. Therefore a survey among students as well as a survey among teachers was conducted to explore the transition in the first weeks. The objective of the survey was to find out how all those involved were coping with the situation and to identify further support measures .
