Abstract

The COVID-19 Pandemic was a disruptive event at such a scale as to necessitate a Great Global Lockdown, mobilizing entire nations to practice social distancing to slow the spread of the virus. The shutdown forced a rethinking of nearly every learning and workplace ecosystem on the planet. According to UNICEF - 134 countries implemented nationwide closures of schools and workplaces. School closures alone impacted approximately 1.725 billion learners, leading many organizations and institutions worldwide to scramble to offer e-learning as an emergency remote alternative to education students and training employees in traditional locations.
