Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic in Spring 2020 caused many college classes to be changed from face-to-face classes to online classes. For some students, this was their first introduction to online courses. The pandemic caused many summer classes to also be online. Two graduate information systems courses typically taught in face-to-face four week summer classes were changed to online for the summer 2020 session. The courses used both recorded videos for asynchronous instruction and daily class Zoom sessions for synchronous meetings. In addition, breakout rooms, help sessions, group projects, and peer review were also used in these courses. This case study outlines how various aspects of the classes were changed and shares the results of student surveys regarding their experiences.
