With the Covid-19 outbreak coming full-swing into our communities, safety is always the first priority. For this reason, a state of emergency has been placed on us by governing authorities. The Paramus BCC facilities have been converted to a viral testing site to serve the infected communities and aid the healthcare system in dealing with this surge of occupants. These are pressing times for all, and students are no exception. As a matter of fact, the timing of the outbreak could not have been worse for teachers and students because it was aligned with many schools midterms; because of this outbreak teachers and students alike are forced to adapt to using an online learning environment for the rest of the semester. This type of learning environment has been slowly integrated into the education system for years, but the sudden thrust into complete online schooling is a lot for students and teachers to handle at once. Lectures and face-to-face communication is no longer an option when seeking guidance from educators. Sure, we are able to email, send outlines, and send corrections back and forth, but the circumstances make it much harder for people to develop the knowledge and skills to be able to successfully understand the information provided by our courses. I believe that incorporating a PASS/FAIL grading system into our 2020 semester will help to mitigate the stress amongst our students and faculty.
