The pandemic undeniably changed the world. It even brought huge economic fallout that not only affected many households but also industries who are now filing bankruptcy or temporarily halting operations to save what’s left of their businesses.
The impact of this sudden shift also affects the workforce. Many careers are, in fact, on the brink of failure today. If we choose not to embrace the digitization that is happening all over the world, there is a danger of being left behind. Now, more than ever, we should step up our game and start upskilling ourselves to not be left behind in this “new normal”.
As an institution committed to providing modern education that responds to the needs of the times, CIIT came up with a solution where professionals can learn new skills or develop existing ones without risking their health and safety. Our Specialist Classes, CIIT’s short course programs for professionals, are finally bringing the learning experience online.
The Specialist Virtual Classes is not your typical online course. It offers personalized learning where students can interact with their classmates and instructors, access the learning resources via the learning management system anytime during the course of their study, and more!
All classes will be a blend of synchronous and asynchronous. In synchronous learning, students are encouraged to attend the live video conference to interact with their classmates and instructors. Meanwhile, with asynchronous learning, all video conferences and materials will be recorded and uploaded so students can re-watch their lessons and work on the materials anytime they want.
All Specialist Classes will be facilitated via Canvas, a Learning Management System widely-used by many colleges and universities worldwide, including CIIT College. To make classes even more convenient, our Instructors will also utilize other video conferencing platforms that are accessible to the students.
To guarantee the learning experience of the Specialist students, we selected industry practitioners who have a wide experience in the course and equipped to teach classes online. Most of them are also tenured Specialist Instructors who have been teaching Specialist Classes for years.
Engagement will play a vital role in Specialist Virtual Classes. Hence, students will be given the time for coaching and mentoring sessions with their instructors where they can ask questions, consult projects, or discuss their concerns.
In case you encountered technical issues and concerns with the software applications or during live streaming sessions, our CIIT Specialist Team and IT Team will be more than happy to assist to help you resolve your concern.
