The Ghana Institute of management and public administration had no educational Plans for Virtual Class for its students. The institution started its virtual class as a result of an outbreak of respiratory illnesses in the Wuhan City of China. Studies later established that the illnesses were the result of a severe acute respiratory syndrome which became known as COVID-19 or Coronavirus. As a result of the novel
disease, it led to the closure of many businesses; limiting personal movement; encouraging stay-at-home and certain behavioral
changes. Such a move occasioned significant changes to the lifestyles of many people around
