Online Learning Doesn’t Improve Student Sleep Habits

With online learning, students may have saved travelling time to and from schools and collages during the pandemic but that doesn’t mean their sleep habits have improved. Says research from the Simon Fraser University, Canada, they do not sleep more despite the time saved commuting, working or attending social events. Self-described night owls were more likely to report a greater positive impact on their sleep, getting to sleep in, instead of waking up early for that morning class, while morning types were more likely to report a negative response to sleeping later than usual. Students sleep less efficiently, less at night and more during the day, but don’t sleep more overall despite having no early classes and fewer work days.
