Has coronavirus opened up any new opportunities for on-line art degrees?
In the past, I had trouble finding any way to earn a BA in Fine Arts on-line, as so few studio art classes are offered on-line. With the coronavirus pushing many classes on-line, does anyone know if there is a way now to get a BA in Fine Arts on-line?
Higher Ed works at the pace of snails.  I bet my son's university does one poorly done online term and then back to F2F in the Fall.

Well, I suspect a lot of schools are scrambling now but will need to figure out a better long-term solution since this probably won't be an isolated event.

From what the experts are saying, once we get past this current outbreak new strains of the coronavirus will likely appear on a regular basis; probably returning every season like the flu. So it seems likely that we're going to be dealing with this kind of thing at least a few months each year, if not more often. In that case, schools will need to adapt to support more online courses and programs to be successful.

Of course, we can keep our fingers crossed that a vaccine is discovered, but given how quickly the virus mutates, it's probably going to be a cat and mouse game like our current flu vaccines.
