Second-year Psychology Major, Britney- Ann Marsh said the class atmosphere has been good and refreshing, adding that teachers have made the experience friendly and accommodating.

Second-year Social Work student, Nalese Smith, also said: aside from the uncertainty of how reliable the electricity and internet will be, currently, I do not see any problems with having online classes.”

When asked if there were any problems with classes on the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, the platform used to conduct online classes, Smith, replied: “I honestly thought that there would have been more problems for the proceeding of classes, the lecturers were punctual and classes have been very engaging.”
