Back to School During COVID Means Engaging Online Learning is More Important Than Ever
By Victoria Hekking |
It’s that time again! “Back to School.”
For some, this is the most exciting time of year - educators and students return to the classroom to see each other again and progress on the pathway of advanced education. For others, “Back to School” means the end of summer vacation. But this year, “Back to School” has a completely different meaning. The thought of going back to school elicits many feelings of uncertainty and confusion for many of us. This is true for students, parents, and educators alike.
The Student: “When am I going to get to see my friends again and how do I communicate with my teachers when I need extra help?”
The Parent: “How can I best support my children’s learning at-home while simultaneously maintaining a quality work-life balance?”
The Educator: “How can I create an effective distance learning environment for my students and where do I find the resources to make such a rapid change?”
As more institutions take their learning and training online for the fall, they are looking to our global team to help them deliver better online learning. To us, “better online learning” means authentic, memorable, and accessible experiences for employers, employees, learners, teachers, AND parents.

We consistently focus on quality, experience, and scalability to ensure that each learning opportunity - whether in the classroom, lecture hall, or boardroom - is memorable and authentic.”
