The outbreak of COVID-19 has changed our lives in many ways. As schools and universities have been forced to shut down, teaching and learning is now taking place in a virtual environment. The traditional way of teaching in a classroom where teachers and students can physically interact, discuss, and share information may not be as applicable in this online setting. Many lecturers may be ill-prepared for the challenge of delivering academic content online. Class size may have suddenly increased, the mode of interacting with students has changed (i.e. now in virtual settings using texting, emojis, polling or breakout rooms) and it is now necessary to deliver content knowledge using different software such as Zoom, Panopto or Microsoft Teams. Teaching has now become a live broadcast, and the format of assessment has also changed (i.e. online exam/quiz or even an open-book format).
