There are ways for surviving online classes. The first thing one must realize is that the classes are different. Not only is the delivery of the material different, but asking questions when something does not register can also be more difficult, much more difficult.
So, asking a question is just a matter of pushing a button on Zoom, or some other delivery package, right? Maybe, if the person teaching the class is physically there. Not all classes are taught using something like Zoom.
Higher education has been presenting online classes for years. There are several reasons for this, some benefit the school, others benefit the students. The reason might determine the delivery.
