The pandemic thrust the usage of Learning Management Systems on teachers in all levels of education. Some students and faculty, especially at the college level were experienced in using it but many were not prepared to the degree needed when schools were forced to go online. Students adapted to online- WebEx or Zoom synchronous lecture classes; online asynchronous courses; hybrid classes with half the students meeting on campus for certain days and online for others; and/or in-person for entire classes that could fit students with appropriately distanced space in lecture rooms. The mixture was sometimes confusing; there could be internet access problems, or computer, sound, and/or camera glitches. Students also had a patchwork of teachers; those who could navigate the technology and the Canvas (LMS) or those who lacked experience despite years of offered training that continued into Spring 2020. This paper reviews some of the COVID-19 school-year issues and reports on a sample survey of business students’ opinions of their experiences.
