Before COVID-19, I’d never heard of Zoom. For anyone unfamiliar, it’s a virtual video meeting platform that lends itself well for classes to meet online when they can’t meet in person. I’ve used it a few times for various group meetings/classes and many colleges are embracing the technology completely.
Since people are attending class from home, though, there are bound to be some people doing things during the lecture that they never would have done in a physical class. The range from petting a cat to attending class in their PJs. These are normal and, to some degree, expected.
Yet a Harvard Law student was handling a firearm during one lecture, and you’d think it was the end of the damn world.
