- In response to the global implications of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Monash College launched its Virtual Classroom in March 2020.
- The Virtual Classroom allows us to continue delivering our trusted pathway curriculum while Federal and State Government restrictions are in place, keeping students on track with their studies and their transition to Monash University.
- We hope to return to face-to-face teaching as soon as it's safe to do so but, given the current Federal and State Government advice, we have extended this date until restrictions are eased.
- If face-to-face classes are able to resume while travel bans are still in place, the College will provide face-to-face classes and will continue to provide Virtual Classroom delivery, including assessments, until travel bans are lifted so that students can complete their study period.
What is the Virtual Classroom?
Using the latest video and webinar technology, the Virtual Classroom brings together interactive teacher-led sessions, discussion forums, and independent learning activities in one easily-accessible Learning Management System.
Students will receive the full classroom experience as they talk with and listen to teachers, and interact with classmates. The Virtual Classroom encourages flexible and self-paced learning that keeps students engaged and on track for entry to Monash University.
It’s the same course content, support and experience delivered in an engaging online environment.
We are so proud of our students in the achievements they have made in the Virtual Classroom.
