    It will be interesting to see whether there's a pickup in homeschooling when all this is done.

    Depending on how long this goes on, it could easily upend quite a few institutions. I have to tell you, I'm pretty pro-public school. But I have to admit that my kids seem to be learning a lot more a lot faster and are more engaged with their learning right now. A lot of professionals are also realizing how nice it is to actually see our kids throughout the day rather than do back to back meetings for 8-10 hours a day and hopefully see them before we fall asleep.

    I would not be shocked at all to see some changes to the workplace when we return, especially if this extends beyond a few weeks. People don't like giving stuff up once they've had a taste.

    I haven't been to a store in almost a week. At all other times, I can safely say I stop by some retail establishment for something at least twice per day. Lots of stuff just totally upended. Maybe if it brought about some social changes there could be a silver lining (once we get the people who are out of work back to work).

    My younger brothers have been taking advantage of the free (only the free) resources that Course Hero has to offer:
    They have course-specific study guides, infographics, and a bunch of videos.

    In case they are preparing for SATs, Khan Academy is also fully free and really helpful
