Report: Virtual learning during COVID strengthened cancel culture on college campuses

“the rapid shift to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated the ongoing free speech crisis on college campuses, further suppressed viewpoint diversity, and encouraged more self-censorship among students”

Malignant ideologies tend to easily adapt to new conditions.

Campus Reform reports:

A recent report reveals that virtual learning environments during COVID-19 led to an acceleration of cancel culture at American universities.

A report from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni — which promotes academic freedom in American higher education — discovered that “the rapid shift to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic exacerbated the ongoing free speech crisis on college campuses, further suppressed viewpoint diversity, and encouraged more self-censorship among students.”

“ACTA’s report draws attention to early signs that the online learning environment can be less hospitable to free and open debate than an in-person, on-campus collegiate education,” explains a press release from the organization. “Administrators and policymakers must grapple now with how to refine policies and build norms so that faculty are free to teach and students are free to learn in the online classroom, just as they are in the traditional classroom.”

Eh, maybe. The bigger issue with online learning is that no one learns.
