Universities are working to continue learning in places affected by the coronavirus outbreak. Here's how.

The coronavirus has infected more than 75,000 and killed more than 2,000 worldwide since its outbreak in December. Since then, university officials have kicked into high gear as they work to put policies and programs in place to keep students safe and learning. At New York University's Shanghai campus, spring semester classes were set to begin Feb. 3, but health authorities in the Chinese city requested a delay for in-person classes until at least March. But that didn't stop NYU from kicking off classes. Over the course of just two weeks, NYU professors worked together to convert roughly 300 face-to-face classes into an online format, restoring access to education for nearly 1,000 students. Betsy Foresman has more about what universities are doing amid the epidemic.
