Many of us organize our instruction around class discussions of assigned readings. While it's possible to replicate this teaching method online through video conferencing, students may not have reliable access to the Internet, audio/video hardware, or a quiet space where they are currently living. It may also be hard to keep to regular class meeting times if we suddenly have to care for family and ourselves in new ways.
