CSUB and BC see an uptick in student preferring online classes

Zoom became a way of life for students during the pandemic. But CSU Bakersfield and Bakersfield College are seeing some students preferring to stay online now that colleges and universities across the country are transitioning back to mostly in-person learning. The colleges are currently in registration season and at Bakersfield College, the Dean of Instructional Effectiveness, Craig Howard said online courses are filling up at faster rates than face-to-face courses, and at CSUB they are seeing the same for online general education courses.
