Virtual Classroom Model Brings Educational Innovations

When Spring Arbor College pioneered one night-a-week programs for working adults back in the 1980s, it was the first college in the state of Michigan to do so. That same passion for accessible education prompted SAU to launch its virtual classroom options last fall.

With this offering, students are able to enroll in many of SAU’s bachelor and master programs via the “virtual classroom.” In contrast to online programs, in which students have no face-to-face time with their instructors, or site-based programs, in which students have to be in the same location every week, this modality enables students from across the state to log onto live video classes from the comfort of their homes or offices.

“We’re really excited about the chance to provide even greater access to our programs,” says Dr. Josh Wymore, Senior Executive Director of SAU Global. “As we strive to become the most relational and student-centered educational option for adult learners in Michigan, we think the virtual classroom gives us great tools to do that. It’s the perfect blend of flexibility and relationships for students that don’t want to sacrifice either when going back to school.”

Programs offered in the virtual classroom format include social work, nursing, management and business. Interested students can contact SAUadmissions@arbor.edu for more information.
