Harvard University Will Deliver Deliver All Its Classes Online This Fall
IBL News | New York
All Harvard University undergraduate and graduate students for the 2020-21 academic year will take their classes online–the university announced yesterday. “Students will learn remotely, whether or not they live on campus,” the institution said.
Only 40% of its undergraduates, including all first-year students, will live on campus –in single bedrooms with a shared bathroom.
“This will enable first-year students to benefit from a supported transition to college-level academic work and to begin to build their Harvard relationships with faculty and peers,” the officials wrote. “Both online and dorm-based programs will be in place to meet these needs. Over the last few weeks, there has been frequent communication with our first-year students about their transition to Harvard and this will continue as we approach the start of the academic year.”
“We also will invite back to campus those students who may not be able to learn successfully in their current home learning environment,” the officials wrote.
