With hurricane season upon us once again, students, parents, and educators across the United States and throughout the Caribbean are hoping that this year no one faces the devastation seen last fall as a result of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Maria. What last year’s hurricane season made clear, however, is that when natural disasters strike, online education holds the potential to play a vital role. As demonstrated in Southern Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, online learning can help thousands of students remain focused on their studies even as schools rebuilt.
