iMLearning program at Shenandoah University smooths transition to online
As the pandemic forces universities across the country to switch to online classes, the iMLearning program allowed Shenandoah University’s transition to be seamless. Started back in 2009, iMLearning, or Integrated Mobile Learning, had the end goal of supplying every student, faculty and staff with a MacBook and other Apple devices. Students lease the devices for eight semesters, after which the devices are theirs to keep. Operating on the same hardware and software keeps things simple, and the school has a mail-based process for equipment repairs and loaners. Thanks to this program, Shenandoah University was able to have a leg up on the online transition.
As future semesters may continue to be online, the iMLearning program will continue. Shenandoah University will be shipping out the equipment to students enrolled in summer courses.
