Gen Z College Students, COVID-19 Courses & Beyond


The pandemic thrust the usage of Learning Management Systems, LMS, on teachers in all levels of education. Some students and faculty, especially at the college level, were experienced in using it but many were not prepared to the degree needed when schools were forced to go online. This paper reviews undergraduate Generation Z (born after 1996) opinions and experiences of positive learning effects from doing coursework with an LMS and their eagerness to continue with flexible online educational supplements. A small case study of Human Resource students compares perceptions of Academic Year (AY) 2020-2021 with online synchronous courses and AY 2021-2022 with in-person courses.
