Abstract: The COVID pandemic has changed many aspects of our lives and none more so than how we provide education to thousands of university students in a locked-down world. Up to now the use of technology and engagement with students has followed a very traditional and standard approach. Universities and institutes have provided online learning platforms where technology was used as a support in limited ways. As academics and students were forced to isolate, technology solutions came to the forefront to provide an active learning environment. This paper examines the use of these technologies to provide interactive training and support to students. We reflect on different methods used for student engagement in providing lectures, laboratories, and tutorial support. Universities struggle to provide assessment methods that adequately evaluate the student’s knowledge and understanding of the subject matter. Here we reflect upon and evaluate some of the lessons we have learned about how COVID has changed our perception of technology in education.
