UK universities switching to online video lectures


British universities are ending in-person lectures in an effort to arrest the spread of Covid-19, saying they will switch to remote learning and even online exams for students within weeks.

The London School of Economics, King’s College London, the University of Durham and Manchester Metropolitan University said they would soon end face-to-face teaching in favour of digital delivery, including video lectures and online seminars.

The announcements came as several universities said they planned to curtail public events, with Cambridge University’s medical school and others looking to pause teaching and clinical exams because of the pressures on the NHS.
