In this current situation it is really important that all students’ can access and engage with learning and communicate and collaborate digitally outside of College. The most important thing students will need to do is access Microsoft Teams and Office 365, and be able to engage in virtual learning through the use a camera and microphone. Additionally, whilst it is not mandatory, many courses are now encouraging students to bring portable devices into College to use in their lessons. This is a fantastic way of helping learners to prepare for the world of work as many jobs now involve using portable computers.
As we realise that not every student has a portable device, and the College is not in a position to provide computers to students, we have put a number of support options in place to assist students in gaining the digital access required to allow them to fully engage with their learning.
These are as follows:
While you are a student at SGS you have access to a free copy of Microsoft Office applications (Word, PowerPoint etc.).
We are offering additional timeslots in our Learning Resources Centres to accommodate those who need more access to digital resources on campus.
