Communications of the Association for Information Systems


We describe our experience in teaching two different levels of undergraduate business analytics courses during the coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. In particular, we focus on two challenges that arose during the shift to emergency remote teaching: 1) engaging students and 2) teaching students how to use software. We discuss our efforts to mitigate the effects of these problems and highlight the differences in implementing our strategies in a general-education (i.e., required for business majors) course versus an upper-level elective. Finally, we discuss lessons learned and recommendations for other educators regardless of their teaching modality.
