With COVID19, the University of Akron and many other universities had to adjust how they taught students. They went from primarily in-person classes to primarily remote classes as well as hybrid classes. This project is meant to determine how students at the university were affected by this change regarding their overall satisfaction with remote learning. Students at the University of Akron were surveyed in September 2023. The questions regarded demographics, location during the semesters (from spring 2020 to current), impact on study habits, impact on grades, impact on social life, satisfaction with courses, and general thoughts on online learning. Questions regarding impact on study habits, impact on grades, impact on social life, and satisfaction with courses were answered using a Likert scale. There were three open ended questions regarding general thoughts on online learning. Other questions were multiple choice with “other” as an option. It was found that students were generally unhappy with taking online classes, though a not insignificant amount of students either reported being affected little or being very satisfied with taking online classes.
