With a personal and human touch
Prague City University has a Digital Campus for online and distance learning, as well as three physical campuses in the centre of Prague for face-to-face instruction.
For more than a decade PCU has been delivering blended learning degree programmes using digital delivery, as well as entirely online tuition towards professional level qualifications. All of the programmes are structured to allow a number of classes to be taught through the Digital Campus, while using the physical campus for the majority of face-to-face teaching.
We introduced technology in a number of our classrooms allowing our lecturers to simultaneously teach to students who are physically in the room and to students who join class through the video conferencing platform. Students in the physical classroom can interact with students in the digital campus classroom, creating a shared classroom experience in real-time.
These technology-enhanced classrooms are available to all programmes, and can be creatively used to provide unique and outstanding learning opportunities.
Combined classrooms are just one of the ways that Prague City University can adapt to health and travel restrictions in the case that some students experience delays in getting visas or flights to Prague for the upcoming September semester. These technology-enhanced classrooms are available to all programmes, and can be creatively used to provide unique and outstanding learning opportunities. How the Digital Campus will be used will vary on a programme by programme basis.
The Digital Campus features small class sizes. This allows our teachers during class to prioritise students, with an emphasis on individual attention and mentoring. Real-time interaction provides an immersive online experience with a personal, human touch.
