Abstract: This study examined the contribution of asynchronous teaching workshops held at an Academic College in Israel, approximately a year and a half prior to the Covid-19 outbreak. The research continued during the first semester in which the lecturers moved to teaching online using Zoom. The study was conducted in a mixed method: Quantitative and Qualitative Approach. The findings of the study are mixed: It was found that the workshops contributed to the understanding of the differences in teaching a face-to-face course compared to an online course, even if, in the near term, the change was not reflected in the structure of the course website. However, in the long run, it was found that the training that took place before the Covid-19 outbreak had a major contribution to the confidence and ability of the lecturers to move from face-to-face instruction to distance instruction using Zoom.
