Around the world, confinement measures imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic have forced universities to shut down their campuses. Graduate students opted for online modalities to progress their academic writing projects, including theses and dissertations.

A follow-on discussion focuses on existing digital learning environments and considerations for subsequent research.
