What is a Virtual Learning Experience?
Our Virtual Learning Experience is interactive and simulates the classroom environment that follows the working day as closely as possible. CodeClan’s priority is to ensure the safety of our students and staff, while maintaining a high level of service.
- Each day begins with a virtual standup to allow for student feedback.
- Live, interactive lessons are hosted through virtual hosting tools and made available for review afterwards.
- Support is provided through conferencing and screen sharing tools that are available to all our students. Additional support on self-learning is also provided.
- A daily Q&A document is shared to collate student questions.
- Paired programming will continue using tools including Teletype:Atom and Visual Studio.
- Cohorts on group projects work together via conferencing or other online tools.
- There are smaller group lessons, and flexible times outside 9 to 5.
- Flexi times are also available for additional support
Our team will assist and coach you for a role in the technology ecosystem but due to the economic uncertainty our standard placement processes have been slowed. Our goal is to support you through this process with a new profile system, promote your skills and experience to our partners and engage organisations across Scotland to understand who is hiring for full time and part time roles.
Our Student Support and Instructor teams are continuing to deliver support and training, and individual meetings are available by appointment and screen sharing. Our team of instructors and learning support staff are on hand for individual assistance or help with group projects.
We believe that these measures will give students the best opportunity to learn in a supportive environment, and to gain additional agile skills to move forward in a rapidly changing environment. Deadlines will remain the same and this will give our students the opportunity to learn how to work as part of a distributed team.
Any student who is self-isolating can still continue to learn using our Virtual Learning Experience depending upon the level of absence (to be agreed) we will decide on how to proceed with cohort lessons.
All CodeClan events have moved to webinars. Find out when our next webinar is here.
We will be frequently monitoring delivery provision, responding appropriately, and updating the plan as necessary.
