Due to COVID-19, many institutions have moved to online education in order to protect the students’ health and safety.
This new system of learning can be a hassle if you are a hands-on learner. Now more than ever, it’s critical to stay focused and give your best in your classes as the semester is coming to an end.
“I am just ready for this semester to be over. I did not know that the coronavirus was so serious, but this taught me how fast everything can change. I only had one online class, and now everything is online. I’m just happy I have a reliable computer,” said freshman Jordan Williams.
Many professors are conducting live video sessions to teach their classes, which is very helpful and promotes engagement with students from home.
The online switch-over was a quick transition for everyone--professors, students, and students’ parents. Globally, instructors and universities around the world are coming together for their students to ensure that students still receive the education they need to be successful.
“I thought that was a really good idea to move everything online. No one prepared for an outbreak, but they managed to keep our education a priority. I was kind of upset we had to move off-campus, but I understand safety is first,” Danielle Moore said.
To all Savannah State University graduating seniors, let us finish the semester strong and continue our amazing life journeys.
