Online learning has been studied long before the pandemic. Some educators are concerned about online learning. The COVID-19 pandemic changed everything. During the earlier part of the pandemic (Spring 2020), many universities were locked down. Every course had to switch to online delivery mode. This imposed quite a challenge for some courses. For example, how do you conduct labs which needed to use lab equipment? How do the students work together on their capstone projects? The success and lessons learned during the pandemic is an important part of the effort to take advantage of online learning. Many of the practices forced upon us during the pandemic are useful even after the pandemic. Online presentation, use of GitHub for software development, use of Google documents/directory, Google form for team evaluation and peer evaluation are a few things that can be adopted after pandemic to improve student learning. In this paper, success and lessons learned will be shared in regards to the use of Zoom in lectures, laboratories, and help sessions, homework and quizzes in Canvas, virtual presentation for Mini-Maker Faire, feedback from students, and capstone projects.
