Nonetheless, our idea of normality is being put to the test as never before in traditional teaching
and learning . The main culprit seems to be twofold (1) government's slow response to coronavirus
pandemic and (2) often cumbersome if not poor quality of virtual learning technology. For students
it is difficult to stay focused without stable internet or user friendly protocols. For faculty inability to
assess and monitor students academic performance remains insurmountable challenge. Majority
of both view online teaching and learning as a second-rate version of what was done in a
traditional classroom.

To mitigate COVID-19 negative impact on teaching and learning, authors published in AEQ advise
