The aim of this paper is to review megatrends, trends and their status quo in the world during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first part examines our understanding of definitions and concepts of education delivered online. Next, I outline the megatrends and the way they have been playing out in the educational contexts. The next part of the paper looks at the COVID-19 as the Global Catalyst and the way it has influenced our lives and the current trends. Finally, I explore the possible Day After and how, in the times of turmoil and tectonic change, the English Language Teacher has a significant advantage over other educators.
