Research Survey


Adult Learners' Perception of Online Learning Due to COVID-19


COVID-19 has left an indelible mark on the way we work and learn, creating an urgent need to understand its impact on adult learning.

The Institute for Adult Learning, an autonomous institute of Singapore University of Social Sciences (“IAL”), is conducting this online survey to capture adult learners' participation, perceptions, and attitudes towards online learning since the implementation of the Circuit Breaker, as well as to identify the challenges faced and support needed by the learners. Your participation in this study is important to help provide insights and information that will enhance policies and programmes relating to online learning, and to improve online learning design and outcomes. 

IAL has appointed Ascentiq Pte Ltd, a research agency based in Singapore, to conduct this survey. Selected participants will receive an email from Ascentiq to take part in this 20-min survey, open till 29th September 2020. As a token of our appreciation, a S$20 e-voucher will be offered for each completed survey. The S$20 e-voucher will be issued to participants two weeks after they have completed the survey.
