Several universities in Hong Kong were hit by more than the Covid-19 crisis and adoption of online classes started as early as mid November 2019. In terms of student size, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) is the largest one in Hong Kong. The seminar will discuss comprehensively the alternative Teaching and Learning practices taken up by PolyU in response to the threats from the crises, support services provided, as well as feedback from teachers and students. Solutions to combating two major challenges encountered -  providing unfettered Internet access for students residing inside mainland China and the tightening of security measures in the use of cloud-based collaboration tools are also outlined. This talk will conclude with a list of critical factors that ensures the success of online teaching and learning, and surprisingly the opportunities opened up as a  result of being forced to operate in a highly confined and restrictive environment.
