The COVID-19 pandemic caused a fast shift to remote teaching. This caused many challenges, including no access to physical labs, no access to computer labs and campus-wide software licenses, and an increased need for interactive tools and activities for students that could be accessed remotely.
We at Ansys provide multiple software solutions for teaching in different engineering disciplines, including materials. During the pandemic, we found materials educators using our software to teach in different ways, such as flipped classroom and interactive teaching, to work around the challenges caused by remote teaching. Details on our Academic team’s support for both educators and learners and our plans as the teaching space continues to change and evolve in this post-pandemic landscape will be shared.
