Here we share insights to help those preparing for an online ABET accreditation visit. These insights are gleaned from our own visit which pivoted to entirely online approximately six months in advance. The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) conducted all 2020-21 reviews remotely (online) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Preparing for an online visit involved preparing the “display room” experience in electronic format, pre-recording lab video tours, conducting live video lab tours, and supporting more than sixty video conferencing meetings. All internal team meetings in preparation were also conducted online, with very limited physical face-to-face interaction. Although an online visit at first appeared logistically easier than in-person, numerous lessons-learned could make the next occurrence vastly more efficient.
