Making the transition will need to be a team effort. I would ask that you work together with your classmates and your instructors as we make this big shift. Together you can help each other find ways to make the Rest of the semester as meaningful as possible.”
Solution For Online Transition

Like BU, other university may come up with these kind of ideas in which they will teach their students online because no one knows how much time will this CORONAVIRUS problem took to get solved.
