Will Spring 2022 Be Mostly Remote?

Students can pull out their fuzzy slippers and relax behind their computer screen because it’s looking like we are heading towards a large variety of our classes staying remote in spring 2022. Since March 23, 2020, GCC classes have been taught remotely in response to the coronavirus disease. 

The COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet, and Glendale Community College will continue to adjust accordingly for the safety of our community. Remote courses are taught both synchronously on platforms such as Zoom and asynchronously. There are meeting days and times listed, bringing learning into a student’s home. As of fall 2021, 80% of classes are being offered online. Hands-on classes, such as jazz band and microbiology, are now being offered in-person on campus. 

Although sometimes challenging, both students and staff have learned to make the best of online learning since the outbreak. Some students don’t mind the switch over and hope to continue to learn remotely. 

El Vaquero interviewed a second-year student at Santa Monica Community College, Timofey Deim, who says he absolutely loves online learning. 

“Remote learning has vastly improved my life,” Tim said “I have more time for my family, my friends and my own life. I hope to continue my learning remotely for the rest of my education if we are allowed. I like being able to do things on my time.”

GCC has established protocols to help protect both staff and students. Vaccinations are required by the end of October. The college stipulates that you must have both doses of the vaccine. Students who are only taking online classes do not need to be vaccinated. Face coverings are still mandatory indoors at any district facility.
