Description

This is a typical Zoom class for an Ethics course. The highlighted box indicates the professor was speaking to her students. Not all the students' cameras are on and most of their microphones are muted.

Coverage

This is how all Springfield College students, including the seniors, finished their Spring semester of 2020. Desks were substituted with beds and couches. There were no pencils or notebooks. The only thing that remained constant was a laptop, but this time a microphone was necessary. The lack of attention on the part of the students is very evident. Not only with all the muted microphones, but also the off webcams. There is no way of knowing if the student is even present. This image shows the students' experiences caused by COVID-19 and how they had to be quarantined in their houses. It is important to preserve this because it shows the sacrifices students, as well as teachers, were forced to take. I want them to notice what each student is doing. Many of them are looking away from their computer, and others have their camera turned off to hide what they may have been really doing.
