The COVID-19 pandemic forced educators to embrace online and hybrid learning. Effectively teaching students from a distance can be challenging. Despite this, educators should consider several aspects when planning online and hybrid lesson delivery. One of these aspects revolves around spacing learning opportunities over time (Sumeracki, 2020). For instance, students will learn and retain more information when allowed to study for spread out 30 minutes instead of 2.5 hours continuously per day. Educators should also consider switching between different topics when teaching (Sumeracki, 2020). Doing this ensures learners are familiar with the differences and similarities between varying ideas. When planning lesson delivery, be it in an online or hybrid environment, integrating retrieval practice is vital. By doing this, educators will help students bring information to mind from memory, helping their comprehension and retention of information (Sumeracki, 2020). Educators can use frequent no-stakes or low-stakes quizzes via course management systems for distance courses.
