Universities across the world have been hit hard by COVID-19 terms of academic structures and course transmission.
Following PM Scott Morrison’s announcement of banning large public gatherings (500 outdoors and 100 indoors), universities are rapidly moving to an online course delivery system. Online classes are becoming increasingly available to students as an additional option along with attending face-to-face lectures and tutorials – not a full replacement. This means staff members still have to come to work and put themselves at risk of contraction.
As students and staff grapple with these changes, the only question looms – When will there be a complete shutdown?
