Northeast Florida Higher Education: They’re Open for  News |  Jax Daily Record |  Jacksonville Daily Record

Jacksonville University Provost Christine Sapienza says the university now offers more online options for students. The overnight transition to online learning in March 2020 was an arduous task that turned out to be an opportunity to improve access to education, said Jacksonville University Provost Christine Sapienza. “It was a massive flip of the switch to go to the fully online environment. We had to redesign courses to a more modular format,” Sapienza said.

A greater role for technology in delivering instruction and more specialized graduate courses and certificate programs are trends driving the future at FSCJ, Edward Waters University, Jacksonville University and the University of North Florida. “We want people to know we are open for business in the fall. It’s time and we’re back with more options for students,” said John Avendano, president of Florida State College at Jacksonville.

“More resources are available now to students. Institutions were forced to be creative when we were forced to go online because of COVID. That brought forward a lot of services, like virtual tutoring and supplemental instruction,” Avendano said. FSCJ President John Avendano says more resources are available to students since the pandemic.

The “flip of the switch” accelerated the technology program at Edward Waters University. Founded as a college in 1866, it was accredited as a university in June when it introduced an online MBA program. Edward Waters University Provost Donna Oliver

“Remote learning is here to stay. It’s an enhancement and we’ll use it judiciously,” Sapienza said. JU implemented an online tutoring program that remains available to students 24/7 and the university also expanded its graduate studies curriculum with more online options.
