Phnom Penh (FN), June 6 – It has been more than two months since the American University of Phnom Penh (AUPP) moved classes online in response to the COVID-19 virus. The recently completed Spring Semester and current Summer programs have been well received.

“The sudden shift from physical classroom to virtual one is hard at first and we all took quite some time to get used to the technology as well as the new learning environment. We can tell that our university has gotten everything prepared, that was why we did not take long to shift our learning immediately to online classes”, said an AUPP junior year business major, May Solisa.

She continued that: “I would not say it is an easy journey, however, I think so far online learning at AUPP is a successful one as professors manage to maintain the same quality and the standard of education as we have received in our physical classes”.

Many AUPP faculty are very experienced with online instruction and others have received training and technical assistance to help with converting their classes. AUPP has made additional resources available through its online learning portal to help students and faculty to maximize the opportunities created by the online teaching and learning environment.

AUPP is committed to maintaining students’ academic progress and improving their educations in ways that protect the health and safety of the whole university community.
