South University‘s SouthVR [South Virtual Remote], a live instruction, interactive virtual classroom experience.
As we look to the upcoming Fall quarter, and as the concerns around COVID-19 continue to impact the communities in which we operate, we will continue to align with the national guidance for social distancing for the safety of our campuses. Therefore, in collaboration with our campus and academic leadership, for the protection of our students, faculty and staff, that South University will teach the majority of its courses virtually remote for the Fall quarter.
At this time South University will continue to offer the new modality, now called SouthVR [South Virtual Remote], in which campus-based courses will be available in a virtual classroom setting when possible. SouthVR is temporary learning format that was created to help our students continue their education during the COVID-19 pandemic. This format differs from both campus and online classes by offering live scheduled instruction in a remote environment. SouthVR is a temporary educational format that will be offered until we more fully return to our campus-based learning.
South University’s instructors will offer SouthVR, in a live instruction in a shared peer-to-peer virtual environment that encourages interactivity and collaborative working groups. Our faculty have built dynamic resources to enrich their courses and to ensure that we continue to provide the close-knit classroom experience that we at South University cherish as a community.
Our South University Online (SUO) asynchronous courses will continue to operate online.
With SouthVR our students have real-time interaction with both instructors and their classmates. In addition, faculty and program directors hold remote office hours, provide virtual tutoring, and schedule one-on-one meetings to ensure that we continue to offer the quality student experience that our students have come to expect and deserve. Students will also continue to have access to the normal South University resources and support services they need.
