About This Episode

How would “Tuesdays With Morrie” have ended up if it took place during this pandemic? If Mitch and Morrie met virtually, through a computer screen, instead of in person every Tuesday, sitting close to one another? That’s the question Mitch brings to this week’s show. With students and teachers meeting daily over the Internet, how does this affect the students? The teachers? The learning process as a whole? Can learning be the same without face-to-face interaction and human touch? Would Mitch and Morrie’s meetings have worked virtually? No touch, no wiping tears off Morrie’s face – no nuances to share with the reader. The world will get back to normal one day. But until it does, we have to wonder, how will the virtual worlds we’ve built for the last 7 months affect us all in the long run?
