This might be how you "feel," but this wasn't what happened.

Many of us had to flip our courses to online in two weeks, which was very difficult given the differences in modality. Some institutions were given less time. That being said, many professors might never have taught an online course--nor had the professional development to do so. The quick turnaround for professors was unprecedented.

My current institution is requiring all professors to obtain online professional development this summer to prepare our courses for potentially flipping to an online modality. In order to maintain academic accreditation, I would imagine other institutions are doing something similar to maintain academic rigor.
