COVID-19 Move to Online Classes in the News
CIO Barry Brummund was interviewed as part of a KVOA Channel 4 News story on the University's move to remote learning.
During the coronavirus pandemic, schools across the country have closed and transitioned to online learning all within a matter of weeks.
Students at the University of Arizona made the transition just after spring break.
"Fortunately, we had the right kinds of technology in place already," said Barry Brummond, UArizona's chief information officer. "It was a matter of how do we go from using it for roughly 5,000 students, to how do we use it for more than 40,000 students."
Students and teachers are all adjusting to a virtual classroom.
"We have moved very, very quickly," Brummond said. "We are conducting roughly 25,000 Zoom meetings per week here at the University of Arizona."
