Abstract: COVID-19 prompted a shift for the need to seek the urgent adaptation of more inclusive online teaching and learning practices (​Hodges, Moore, Lockee, Trust, & Bond., 2020)​. The need for practices to promote online learning for all prompted a project focused on the transition to Rapid Online Teaching and Learning (ROTL). Results of this study reveal that low bandwidth was experienced by students enrolled at community colleges as well as educators. For the faculty and students who experienced barriers to the ROTL transition forms of resolution included technology and institutional supports, but were primarily overcome by personal resources.
