Transition to Online Learning
COVID-19 changed every aspect of life as we knew it. With the onset of this pandemic, every organization had to begin to conduct business in a completely different manner.

Both educational institutions and students had to begin an immediate shift to teaching and learning online.
For this assignment, you are going to act as an administrator in a school that is moving to an all-virtual setting, something that requires you to make changes to your daily operations. As this administrator, you are to develop and discuss your plan for how you will mitigate any impacts that this new policy will have on the operations of your educational institution. If your focus is K–12 you will be using Google Classroom, and if your focus is Higher Education you will be using Blackboard or Canvas.

. How will you track and report on student performance in the virtual setting?
· Plan the process to use to complete teacher/professor observations including frequency and post-observation sessions.
· Plan an information session to share your virtual learning plan including training and mitigation strategies for all stakeholders. Stakeholders could include:
