Language courses - online session
When we were forced earlier this year to interrupt our March-April classes shortly after they had begun, we then quickly transferred our classes online to give our students an opportunity to stay engaged and to complete the session.
We found in the online setting that the students' learning outcomes were still as high as ever, and that these online classes did help to break isolation and build community, despite social distancing.
Very encouraged by the success of this first experience, we've already completed two more sessions completely online, and we are continuing to offer our classes online until the situation allows us to decide otherwise.
Details about the online classes:
10 students maximum per class
Classes are 2.5 hours in length, with at least one break
We use the Zoom platform – we will give all the necessary information for getting started
Technical requirements for using Zoom
The use of a computer is strongly recommended. If you don't have one, you can use a tablet or cell phone, but this is not recommended as these can present technical challenges.
You will need a high-speed internet connection, a camera and a microphone (if you use a laptop, the camera and microphone are normally integrated).
You must have a web browser (Chrome recommended). You can also use firefox, but avoid using Internet Explorer.
