The COVID19 pandemic has forced students into an online learning environment without providing enough lead time for such transitions. With respect to teaching and learning in IT education, there are significant differences in learning spaces provided by online environments when compared with face-to-face environments. In this practice paper, we draw on our personal teaching experiences during the pandemic and examine differences in learning spaces through the lens of digital transformation components in the literature. We make several suggestions that could be adopted by stakeholders of higher education institutions to enhance learning spaces for students and adopt new behavioural norms for a successful transition in IT education.
