All UEA teaching to be moved online from Monday
The University will remain open
All teaching at the University of East Anglia will be online starting from Monday due to coronavirus.
In an email sent to all students, the University said all teaching will be conducted “via blackboard” from the 16th of March to the 19th of April.
“All classroom and laboratory teaching will cease,” it reads. “For off-campus placement and internship activity, students should follow the guidance offered by their placement or internship provider.”
The full email reads: “Please be aware the University remains open next week.
“As a precautionary measure, from next Monday 16 March until 19 April, all teaching will be delivered via Blackboard.
“All classroom and laboratory teaching will cease. For off-campus placement and internship activity, students should follow the guidance offered by their placement or internship provider.
“If you are not sure about your placement provider’s current guidance, please ask your Head of School, Course or Placement Director.
“We expect that for the next week, our virtual learning environment Blackboard will be used to provide relevant course content and materials, and students should check their email for updates as well as their module Blackboard sites.
“The University is continuing to review the situation and will provide more information to you within the next two weeks about arrangements that will be in place for after 19 April.
“All relevant public health information, including guidance from the Government and the NHS is available here.
“Please look through the UEA COVID advice on the website. If you have a specific query please email [email protected] and we will look to either update the website FAQs or reply to you. Thank you for your understanding and co-operation in this unprecedented situation.”
