Monograph writing and “distant” supervision in the pandemic

Due to the spread of Corona Virus, The Moroccan government decided to close all universities, a decision that impacted the lives of professors and students in a negative way since the latter were not capable to attend conventional classes in their institutions. As an alternative, to reach the goal of allowing students and their supervisors to interact, distant learning started to be developed in the form of some online platforms set by universities in addition to personal initiatives from teachers via the use of online resources like zoom. This shift in education from traditional classroom learning to computer-based online learning, which might be one of the largest educational experiments to date, has also changed the way monograph supervision is accomplished. In this article we will display the different problems university professors faced in monograph supervision at the level of methodology and interaction.
