ENTER students are participating in Collaborate sessions on Monday and Friday to increase online communication and blend the at home and face to face portions of the program.
Collaborate (formerly Elluminate) is an interactive online classroom using two-way audio, multi-point video, interactive whiteboard, desktop sharing, breakout rooms and much more.
Collaborate allows us to engage as if we were in a traditional classroom – from the comfort of our home! Students meet Monday and Friday morning and are currently looking at research skills to apply to their Extreme Environments projects which will be completed in a blended format (at home and at school). On Monday and Friday afternoons they have the opportunity to “drop in” to a Collaborate classroom to ask questions and/or receive help with the subject areas they are covering at home.
