Abstract: 

With the start of the Covid-19 pandemic and the decision to close post-secondary schools to in-person teaching, an opportunity was presented to examine the challenges, benefits and ability to pivot to an online teaching environment, both from the student and instructor perspectives. In the Summer 2020 semester at Simon Fraser University, Chemistry 121 (General Chemistry and Laboratory I) ran for the first time as an online course. In this paper, we will explore the experience of developing and running the course.
