Distance learning and coronavirus: why haven’t my school thought of that before?

The outbreak of the new coronavirus and the consequent Covid-19 disease has been impacting several sectors, ranging from tourism to the education sector. That’s right, in a situation like this, how to continue with the studies? That is where distance learning and coronavirus are related.

The government of several countries has already declared that schools, colleges and any place with an agglomeration of people will be closed for an indefinite period of time to contain and prevent the spread of the virus, which has already infected more than 130,000 people around the world.

With schools and colleges interrupting activities, the answer comes in a teaching format that is increasingly gaining ground: distance learning.

SEDA College complied with the Irish government’s recommendations and stopped activities since March 12 and is expected to return in late March. However, the school did not think twice about using the methodology of distance learning and transmitting classes online to students.

As SEDA College has its own teaching platform, SEDA College Online, it will broadcast live classes during the forced recess as a measure to reduce the impact on exchange students’ learning.

SEDA College is the first language school in Dublin to have this concern and to take steps to ensure that students continue to learn English, but safely, within their homes.

“Education cannot stop, these people dream of learning English, and SEDA College and SEDA College Online will continue to spare no efforts to keep them learning,” said SEDA College CEO Tiago Mascarenhas.

In addition to continuing their studies during this delicate period in the country, students will be able to access more than 40 courses already available at SEDA College Online, with courses from English to languages such as Spanish, Russian, Portuguese, exam preparation and also for the job market.
