Virtual Learning Communities, Web 2.0, COVID-19
Educational systems worldwide are facing unprecedented challenges that have arisen due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In response to the pandemic, many higher education institutions suspended face-to-face courses and shifted to distance teaching and learning. This major paper reviews the challenges higher education institutions faced after the COVID-19 outbreak, the necessity of implementation of virtual learning communities, and the use of Web 2.0 technologies in teaching and learning. The findings indicate the implementation of virtual learning communities in higher education can reduce the sense of isolation, encourage interactions, and build a support network during the pandemic.
