Agree; a lesson from Covid will be that online learning is NOT a

particularly enticing option in the marketplace, at least as the primary methodology for a typical undergraduate education (and by the way, same for high school and below). While schools might learn to make better use of online tools in some aspects of how they deliver certain content, I think the current educational experience that most folks are getting right now will have the exact opposite effect from persuading folks that "see, we can just educate everyone online and really don't need all these expensive university building and physical plants at all." Overwhelmingly students and parents of students know that they are getting an inferior deliverable right now; and the deficiencies are not things that will be fixed simply by people getting more savvy with using zoom or better at pre-recording lectures.
