In the short space of a week, most universities in the United States were faced with the prospect of delivering the remainder of their spring semester 2020 via non-traditional approaches. The reaction to the feared coronavirus pandemic occurred quickly and definitively. Universities hurriedly determined that the remainder of the spring semester would be via online delivery systems. While this was a shock to many faculty, the ground work for delivering courses in non-traditional formats had been previously developed at most universities. This study discusses the importance of expeditiously acclimating traditional classes in marketing to online format, and the significance of developing orientation programs to acclimate newly shifted courses to improve both student success and morale.

The perception of education quality for business management courses taught by traditional lecture in a classroom or taught by a hybrid blended lecture and online is similar. This study sampled the anticipated and perceived expectation of students in each category. We also looked at traditional versus non-traditional undergraduate business student inclination to enroll in a hybrid course. While we expected the non-traditional students, which tend to work longer hours, to prefer the hybrid format since it did not require as much time on campus. However there was little difference in non-traditional student preference, we discovered a slight preference by Sophomore students for the hybrid format of delivery.

Commentary on the chapter one of the book "How to take care of children"
Chapter one of the book "how to take care of children" says that "Children can be saved because they have not harden their heart through sin" children are still very young and have a very flexible mind, they have a mind that has not been corrupted through sin, they have a mind that have not been occupied with the things of the world, therefore they can easily be saved. Since their mind has not been hardened through sin, they can be easily been taught the things of christ, the saving knowledge of Christ can easily been built in their mind. Therefore, they can be saved. Mark 10:13-16 "And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them" 14 "But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God" 15 "Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein" 16 "And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them"
Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it"
