Academics: Online Learning at Grammar during COVID-19
Updated: May 19, 2020
Though classes may not be taking place in person at Grammar, our doors are very much open. On March 16, the first day after March Break, classes resumed right away via Zoom and Google Classrooms. The Grammar faculty, students and staff rose to the challenge and worked quickly and effectively to ensure that systems were in place for students to return to class, albeit virtually, immediately following March Break. Using online tools such as Zoom and Google classroom, classes have continued as normal and students and teachers alike are finding innovative new ways to learn and teach, including conducting experiments together via Zoom and going on virtual field trips via Instagram Live.
