Moving teaching online is more than just a switch to Zoom or Microsoft Teams. Together with the change of delivery platforms, universities have to consider the pedagogy, methods, tools and models of online teaching in order to maximise the effects of a virtual learning environment. How can universities ensure the quality to achieve satisfactory results for students and academic staff in regards to this new model of teaching?
