Extended Classroom Technology
In one of DeVry’s virtual classrooms, students experience a learning community that goes beyond on-campus and online courses, joining together students from campuses across the country. Using an innovative suite of extended classroom technologies, these virtual classrooms allow students and professors to take part in active learning sessions, complete group projects and interact across extended classrooms, in real time, while at different campus locations.
Students have the opportunity to pursue career-focused, real-world degree programs and certificate programs in a variety of classroom environments at DeVry University. Students can attend classes on campus, online and through our innovative extended classroom technology. These different learning modalities are designed to complement a variety of learning styles and meet the needs of a geographically dispersed student population.
Students have access to a wide range of student resources and a student support team committed to their academic success, financial planning and vision for the future.
Student Survey Findings
During the COVID-19 pandemic, students across the country had their traditional classroom learning up-ended and replaced with remote or online learning. To help ease the transition, DeVry University surveyed 4,000 of its online students last month on what best practices, tools and resources they would offer to new online learners, as well as what the benefits are to online learning. The most important tips cited by students were "manage your schedule," "ask questions," and "complete assignments." For the details on the survey and its findings, click here for the Executive Summary.
DeVry University degree programs in business, tech and health helps students gain project-based learning experiences designed to teach how to integrate people, process, data and devices to solve real-world business problems. We harness technology to elevate, enrich and maximize the educational experience and help prepare graduates in transitioning into the modern workplace.
Understanding Workplace Sentiment During COVID-19
Nearly one in four employed Americans (24 percent) believe that American workers are not valued, according to a survey by DeVry University. Also, 36 percent of respondents reported that based on their employer's actions since the start of the pandemic, they believe their employer views them as "disposable." The survey also explored what the American worker believes can be done to build a more "durable" versus "disposable" work environment.
Workplace Hard Skills Survey Findings
New research from DeVry University reveals the need for technology-related hard skills to stay relevant in the workplace and to advance in a challenging economy. The study shows nearly 75% of U.S. workers report the use of technology is now critical to their careers due to COVID-19.
