As coronavirus continues to rage on, many countries are seeing school closures to various degrees. In many cases educational institutions have elected to take the learning process online.

As normal life continues to be upended, and people adapt to the new realities of social isolation, it is important to remember that unconventional times warrant unconventional measures. We all need to be creative and flexible if we are to get through this. Expect the unexpected, think out of the box and do not give up hope. Remember, this too shall pass.
