“The quick time period is the thing that’s vexing most of us,” said Eric Harvey, a professor in GVSU’s multimedia journalism department. “They gave us basically Thursday through Monday as a period to see what we could do to port our classes completely online. “People might think it’s a simple matter of porting the classroom into the digital world and pushing a couple buttons and then everything is essentially the same,” he said. “But it’s a lot more challenging than that, especially for professors who rely on discussion. That’s one thing that’s hard to replicate in the digital relevance.” The initial reaction from students was excitement, but the more time to consider the information the more they realized the potential downfalls of the arrangement.
