How blended learning helps make the impossible possiblePosted on 01/06/2022 by Hayley Clark
If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the past couple of years, it’s that being flexible is an excellent asset. It means you can quickly adjust when life throws a curveball at you, and carry on with minimal disruption.
That’s just one reason why the blended learning of ITC and Study From Home works so well when there’s an emergency that stops you from being able to continue studying in person.
What is blended learning?
Blended learning is when you can complete your qualification by enrolling for in-person classes with ITC, but move to our online study platform when there’s an unexpected event or emergency that stops you from studying in person.
For example, if you want to sign up to ITC and join us at one of our campuses in Auckland, South Auckland, or Whangarei, you can enrol for the campus nearest you and start studying.
However, if life has other plans, and you need to temporarily study remotely, or study remotely in order to finish your qualifications, our Study From Home platform can make this possible.
Note that blended learning is only available in case of emergencies, and not an option for those who enrol with Study From Home and but want to switch to on-campus learning.
The best of both worlds
The possibility of blended learning can give students greater confidence that they will be able to finish what they start.
This has proven to be true during lockdowns, when our students seamlessly switched from in-person learning on campus to online learning with little delay to their studies. While much of New Zealand ground to a halt, ITC and Study From Home students continued to earn valuable qualifications thanks to blended learning.
But this is also true for many students who have had their plans disrupted. We have seen students start studying in person and move to our online courses after becoming pregnant and needing to juggle the demands of appointments and health needs, such as the case of Veronica Maihia.
We’ve seen students switch to online learning after unexpectedly moving away from their local campus, and many other scenarios where Study From Home has made it possible for students to graduate even when their original plans were disrupted.
Would flexible learning benefit you?
If you know you want to study with ITC, keep in mind that if something happens that would stop you from studying in person, you could temporarily or permanently work with Study From Home to complete your qualification.
