Students in the Human Kinetics program at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus are frustrated after their program was moved online due to COVID-19 case rates, reports Global News. Students expressed concerns about having to suddenly switch to taking their class online, and Global News reports that some students have already signed leases and paid for parking passes so they could attend school. “Parents and students are struggling as now they have to pay [for housing] and they don’t know when, or if, the classes are going to be back on,” said Renee Jardine, whose son was to return to in-person learning at UBCO. UBCO explained that some course components have moved online to “ensure an effective, inclusive learning environment.” Global News | UBCO (BC)
