Since March of 2020, Concordia has proven its ability to deliver classes in a virtual environment. While the transition was initially challenging for some, remote learning has been praised by many students and teaching staff for the improved work-life balance it brings as well as improved comprehension for many students.

For these reasons, After having a mixed classes with blended classes with increase in covid classes around the world we believe that Concordia should offer the option on online finals for the students who are taking classes that are full and hastily we can all see that there no one attending since covid classes are only full on exams days As the world continues to globalize, virtual collaboration, communication and new technical skills are increasingly key factors of success in the workplace. Universities are often regarded as leaders, as the world is transitioning to be more virtual so should education.

After The decision by the Gouvernement du Québec and Concordia University to force in-person learning on the student population is insensitive to the varied situations of individual people.

Other students live with people who are at high-risk of complications due to Covid-19, or are at high-risk themselves. We should have  the opportunity for students to choose doing their final exam in a way  best suited to their situation. 

Thank you for your consideration and we respectfully request that you review your current stance on course delivery methods.
