This article “Online teachers face real challenges in virtual classrooms” — originally published in the Columbus Dispatch on Nov. 17, 2019 — describes the challenges that educators often face when transitioning to teaching an online course. In this article, Dr. Chris Harrington, director of the Michigan Virtual Learning Research Instituteis quoted saying:

Often, learning how to use technology is a small part of effectively training teachers for an online environment. Rather, the focus should be on how to manage online classrooms, connect with students who are not physically present, and curate content that resonates with them.”
