East coast postsecondary institutions are announcing plans for their future course delivery. McGill University has announced that it will be returning to “more regular rhythms of on-campus academic activity by September” while continuing to implement public health and safety measures. The University of Prince Edward Island has announced that it will be offering as much in-person and on-campus learning as possible this fall, with hopes of providing a “more normal” academic experience. When reflecting on the future of online education at their institutions, Dalhousie University, St. Mary’s University, and Mount Saint Vincent University indicated that they will likely continue to offer increased numbers of online courses even after COVID-19, while Nova Scotia Community College anticipated offering blended learning options.
