The Student Course Assistant Program was funded and launched in the Fall of 2020 because of the move to remote learning due to COVID restrictions. The program was created to provide technical support to faculty as they managed Zoom classrooms, requiring additional coordination to transition through the use of Zoom features smoothly. Additionally, the program seeks to provide opportunities for students to gain professional development experience in virtual education and opportunities for remote work.
In the fall of 2020, the SCA program supported 8,000 students and 116 faculty
The Student Course Assistant program is working to expand and improve remote learning support for faculty to facilitate successful and efficient virtual learning during this time and for future virtual learning needs.
