Default How is school being handled for you?

Now that the new school year has started for most people, How is your school handling the pandemic?

1. Are you going in, is it virtual, or is it a hybrid of some sort?

2. If you are doing virtual, do you have to have a webcam on?

3. Do you like this current situation more or less than school under normal circumstances?

4. Anything else you want to add?

For me:
1. My school is completely virtual, at least until January.

2. I am required to have my webcam on during scheduled lectures, but only the teacher can see it.

3. I like it more this way because I feel like I can work at my own pace without feeling pressure. The classes are only half of the day, Teachers are available to answer questions all day, we can schedule 1 on 1 time if we need extra help.

1. Are you going in, is it virtual, or is it a hybrid of some sort? I go into college twice a week the rest of the week is online

2. If you are doing virtual, do you have to have a webcam on? Yes I have a web cam on

3. Do you like this current situation more or less than school under normal circumstances? Would rather go in full time just to get out of the house

1. Are you going in, is it virtual, or is it a hybrid of some sort?

I have in person classes and live on campus

2. If you are doing virtual, do you have to have a webcam on?

N/A

3. Do you like this current situation more or less than school under normal circumstances?

For me personally, there isn’t much different besides having to wear masks and having a couple travel restrictions My school is probably one of the very few schools where things are 90% normal

4. Anything else you want to add?

I go to a very small field school, which is going to be much different than any high school or large college. A lot of places have been getting shut down due to covid rules and increases of cases, and im extremely lucky to have this opportunity to have a mostly normal school year

We are back in school but kept in bubbles. Basically each year has a different section of the school to themselves so we can't interact with the other years.

All of my classes are online, and I am at home. I understand the caution, but I would much rather be living somewhere else and interacting with people and making new friends

1. Are you going in, is it virtual, or is it a hybrid of some sort? It's hybrid. Half online, half on uni campus.

2. If you are doing virtual, do you have to have a webcam on? Cam is always on.

3. Do you like this current situation more or less than school under normal circumstances?

I'm torn. But anyway, the new normal, live and online campus, is planned and developed very well, so the quality of the studying doesn't suffer from any possible lacks. In any case, it's far better than last semester, when everything was just online.

And a advantage is that the commute costs (uni and back) are only the half. In my case, it means I only have to take the ferry 2 (max 3) times a week including my car, since my uni is situated on the mainland. And charging my eCar on campus is free.

I feel like I can live with those circumstances longterms.

We were given a choice - in person or online. I chose in person. I was gonna be around others for soccer anyways. We have mandatory masks, social distancing and other precautions of course. I did end up getting sick last week tho!! But it wasn't covid.

If you're sick but not too sick that you can still access the online classes, can you just log in and have it count?

1. Are you going in, is it virtual, or is it a hybrid of some sort?
Virtual only for all the schools in my district (admittedly only an elementary, middle, and high school but still) with "checkpoints" every quarter to evaluate potentially moving to a hybrid learning.

2. If you are doing virtual, do you have to have a webcam on?
We only have about 2 hours of "class" time a day, 4 days a week that requires us to login to a sort of virtual classroom with our webcam on. Outside of those 2 hours, we can work on our school work at our own pace off cam.

3. Do you like this current situation more or less than school under normal circumstances?
I like this this better because I was bullied when I was in school. But I'm at a new school this year so maybe in person wouldn't be so bad. But I do get to go to school in my pajamas now which is pretty sweet lol

I need to be in school in person.

2. If you are doing virtual, do you have to have a webcam on?
When I had virtual school this depended on the teacher, but most required that the webcam was on.

3. Do you like this current situation more or less than school under normal circumstances?
I liked more to have virtual school.

4. Anything else you want to add?
Virtual school is way better and I learned more and I had fun with school, so strange it may sound.

My university is conducting all classes online. Yes, I use a webcam. No, I don't like it at all and this is a very underwhelming and disappointing beginning to my college experience, especially since I was initially told I would be able to live on campus (that was later rescinded). There have been a number of instances of "Zoom bombing" occurring here as well, though thankfully not in any of my classes yet.

Like many of my fellow students (across the country), I am just waiting for this to be over.

At my university:

1. Are you going in, is it virtual, or is it a hybrid of some sort? I have two in-person classes a week. The class sizes are smaller and everyone is socially distanced. The rest is online and there's a mix of synchronous seminars and asynchronous videos and activities, which I think is really good.

2. If you are doing virtual, do you have to have a webcam on? I mean, nothing would happen if I didn't turn it on but they've kinda said it's etiquette to turn it on. If I don't feel up to it, I just turn it off.

3. Do you like this current situation more or less than school under normal circumstances? I much prefer it like this, contrary to popular opinion. I absolutely despise social interaction to be honest so anything to limit that is a good thing for me. Also the blend of different learning styles is helping to keep me engaged.
