Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is transmitted through droplet transmission and is highly contagious (del Rio & Malani, 2020; Guan et al., 2020; Sohrabi et al., 2020). After it was declared a pandemic on 11 March 2020, the Singapore government implemented a “circuit breaker” period, or partial lockdown, on 7 April 2020 (Ministry of Health, 2020). In spite of numerous initiatives for faculty to embrace technology-enhanced learning over the past years, it was a steep take-off for most programmes at institutes of higher learning. This short personal view intends to share our experience from the sole entry-level physiotherapy programme in Singapore.
