There are 2 comments on BU Virtual, a New Department, Will Chart BU’s Online Learning Future

  1. Some old-timers will recall that online education started at BU close to 40 years ago in ENG with something called “Corporate Classroom”. It was not internet based, but we used a microwave link on the Prudential tower to broadcast classes from a TV studio in 110 Cummington Street, to 30 corporate locations in MA. Students could call in questions using a dedicated phone line. Two or three a times semester, students would come for in for in-class exams; everything worked like a charm. Not only did I miss this remote teaching set-up from 35 years ago during the peak of Covid, but there are still lessons to be learned from our past successes as we move forward; especially in the context of inclusive hybrid classrooms.

  2. Will this focus on Virtual Learning also be offered to staff and faculty with a change in Tuition Remission policies, making online courses eligible for Tuition Remission?
