With the recent development of COVID-19, all educational facilities have resorted to online teaching. Heinz College transitioned into online learning about seven weeks ago. There has been a learning curve associated with the switch that made course interaction much different than previously. The online format has its pros and cons, but the biggest downfall of online formats is the canceled graduations that students worked so hard to lead to that point. It is not without reason but still difficult none-the-less.
COVID-19 has affected everyone across the globe. But we are moving forward, and innovative ideas and solutions are bound to develop out of these uncertain and new times we are now in. I have not been affected by the virus as of yet and remain grateful for that. My heart goes out to those who have suffered from the illness. And for those who have not been affected, stay safe, and practice social distancing. Stay healthy and safe, everyone!
