OK, but why did they have to close? Why not just have classes where people actually talked to each other, you know “like” face to face. I guess i’m getting old.

Even as I communicate to all my friends on the board, I must say that life was a hell of a lot easier without computers. The safest way to communicate is type out a letter or memo and mail it .

Embarrassing!
Need to get better decision makers who make such a call

It wasn't just emails that were shut down. Internet was down for the whole campus. Times have changed my friend, almost all assignments are submitted online through a portal called Canvas. Through Canvas, teachers collect assignments, share grades, give quizzes, and even teach their lessons. It stores their plans and powerpoints. And a good amount of students have all online textbooks which have their own online portals. This, coupled with the unknown of what the hack had actually compromised, made them close. It was the right decision
