RICHMOND, Va. - Colleges and universities across the country have made an abrupt change to online instruction based on the impact of COVID-19 and recent school closures. Some faculty are quite accustomed to virtual learning environments, while others will be learning along with their students. Dr. Catherine Franssen of Longwood University joined us to talk about the new challenges and opportunities that come with online learning and the community effort to provide quality education for college students across the country.
