The ILSC Education Group is proud to continue serving its students across the world during COVID-19 with flexible and accessible online tools. International exchange is a transformative experience in and out of the classroom. That’s why ILSC quickly implemented creative solutions to not only move classes online but also to make a variety of enriching activities available to students under social isolation measures.
“See you on Zoom” has quickly become one of the most common phrases of 2020, but we wanted to make sure students were living as well as learning. After setting up an engaging, virtual classroom experience, we knew we had to address the missing piece: activities!
ILSC’s Online Student Activities
Our new online activities offer a variety of options to students stuck and home. Students register through the new activity portal and can choose between a relaxing yoga session, homework help, or sharpen their skills in the kitchen with a cooking class. Even though we can’t gather during the pandemic, students can still build relationships with each other and local activity leaders. And it’s not just the delivery that’s new. Yoga classes were popular before shifting online, but new limits forced teachers and guides to get creative. DJ lessons and English for Baking are just a few of the ways we can make the most of quarantines!
After a productive day of learning from home, it’s good to take a break, together!
Join ILSC & Greystone College activities online!
Online activities go beyond fun, however. Connecting in this way eases the burden of isolation many are feeling right now, especially international students. The online format means students are connecting with others across campuses, meeting friends they wouldn’t usually encounter. Students also have the opportunity to communicate with their classmates outside of class, a crucial part of an immersive education.
It is important to make the most of the challenges we face. Making the most can mean adapting to circumstances that aren’t ideal. That’s why we’re so proud of our staff and teachers’ global efforts to support our students. From the IT team’s unique registration system to the dedication of our activity guides, ILSC is pleased to continue offering safe and transformative learning experiences across boundaries.
