Dr. Mark Branson was asked how COVID has changed how he teaches/interacts with students?

"One of the good things about COVID is the flexibility it's given us in how we interact with students. With virtual office hours, it's much easier for students to come and ask me a question - rather than having to walk all the way across campus, they can just log in and ask. Several of my students use office hours now to work on their homework, and when they get stuck or confused, sign in and ask me immediately. I also have a lot of students who use course recordings to catch up or review topics that they're struggling with. Even when we're back face-to-face, I'm looking forward to using these tools to help support my students."
