SOME schools have decided to have asynchronous classes from April 5 to 11 because of the extension of the enhanced community quarantine in the National Capital Region.

The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila announced that it will not conduct live virtual sessions for students in the coming week. Instead, recorded video or audio lectures will be made available for viewing any time.

“In assigning asynchronous learning activities, the faculty members are reminded to take into consideration the existing community quarantine restrictions in place as well as the personal circumstances of their individual students, bearing in mind that the health, safety and welfare of students remain to be the primary priority of the University during this health crisis,” PLM President Emmanuel Leyco said.

The Unibersidad de Manila also announced that there will be no synchronous classes but teachers will be available for consultation.

Meanwhile, San Beda College-Alabang extended the suspension of on-site transactions until the ECQ is lifted.

The school said this was to safeguard the health and safety of all stakeholders.

The University of the Philippines Los Baños meanwhile resumed synchronous and asynchronous classes on April 5.
