Architectural Engineering and Construction Engineering
The paper examines students’ perspectives that impact the student learning activities’ transition due to COVID-19. The study seeks to determine how face-to-face or in-person teaching to non-traditional or online methods has affected the student, particularly in the construction program. Additionally, as construction courses typically include labs and capstone projects, it is essential to determine how these courses were delivered as the programs transitioned to the online mediums. The research study compares content delivery before and during COVID-19. The survey questions are used to determine the challenges students face in accessing the course management system, familiarizing themselves, and being satisfied with the course management system, and student's satisfaction with the instructors’ delivery of the course content. Online survey instruments were created to circulate among construction students to a) evaluate the student learning experience during COVID-19 and b) identify student adaptation of content delivery during COVID-19. The students’ perspectives are analyzed with the challenges faced by the students. The survey results will be used to assist faculty in identifying construction curriculum requirements based on the student's perceived ability to learn for any future move to online learning, either due to weather or illness.
