Reply To: Broadband Issues
I was just in a meeting with colleagues discussing this and one of the topics that keeps coming up around this issue is the fact that so many families will have potentially multiple students needing to connect, along with parents who are working remotely. Some of our students now have young children at home as well. Even when a household has decent broadband, this could put a significant strain on those resources.
As a result, many of our faculty are moving towards shifting instruction to a more asynchronous format (or offering both synchronous and asynchronous in tandem). If you’re considering this, in an effort to make this transition less stressful for your students, please post your questions here or feel free to schedule a consultation.
