Instructors To Reach Out for Transition to Distance Education Classes
I hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather. This has been a very tumultuous week, and we appreciate your continued patience and cooperation. OFTC continues to have the safety of our students, faculty and staff at the center of all the decisions that we are making daily. However, be assured that we are working to provide a path forward so that you can continue your education this semester. When we resume classes on April 6, 2020 in our credit programs, it will be different, but our commitment to you has not changed.
Our instructors will be contacting you via phone, text, or email. As always, your OFTC student email will be the preferred method of communication, so be vigilant in checking your email daily. I know some of you may be concerned that you do not have access to the technology needed for online learning. We are looking into solutions to help you progress. Those may be as simple as providing you packets of materials through the mail. We also know that some classes require hands-on learning, and we are looking at viable options to complete those classes.
It is our hope that as the semester progresses that you can come back to the campus. However, as you know, this health crisis is real and is changing every day. Therefore, we must remain flexible in order to provide you with training while working to keep you and our communities safe.
We have provided a directory of contacts for you during this time. Please feel free to reach out to these contacts as well as your faculty members with questions and concerns. Also, please continue to monitor OFTC’s Coronavirus Response & Messages web page for updates.
Have a great weekend, and we will be in touch.
