HARLOW College has said that they have had a positive response to courses and lessons delivered on-line.
With Covid-19 restrictions a number of lessons are being taught via zoom.
Full-time and HE students are provided with an iPad by the College. During Induction they were provided with information on what applications and software they needed, as well as how to use them.
If students did not have home Wi-Fi access they were told they may be eligible for a bursary to assist with costs.
For adult students and apprentices, teams are working with them to understand their technology requirements. In some cases, they may be eligible for a bursary to cover some costs.
A Harlow College spokesperson said: “We have taken a mixed blended approach to teaching and learning depending on the course type, age and level of the learner.
The majority of our Study Programmes are onsite for three half days per week with the rest delivered online.
This will be reviewed after the first 6 weeks.
So far, we have had a positive response to this approach.
“We are in a strong position to deliver some of our learning online, as we are an Apple Distinguished School and a DfE Edtech Demonstrator”.
