This article reports on how those working in post-secondary education and training in Singapore perceive the professional effects of a transition to online learning, teaching and assessment (LTA) as a consequence of the COVID-19 global pandemic. It draws on a survey sample of n=1553 educators and trainers working in Singapore and their perspectives on a how a migration to online LTA is producing long-term, if not permanent changes to the organization and delivery of post-secondary education and training. It reveals a largely positive view of digital resettlement of education and training in Singapore as a consequence of COVID-19. Yet despite, the articulation by respondents of ‘paradigm change’ and ‘education without limits’ we find that an embrace of digitalization is mobilized (and manipulated) not so much by pedagogical concerns but economic ambitions and a utilitarian logic common to the neoliberal incantations of a global education policy community.
