Virtual Classrooms at MSU

Michigan State University Journalism Instructor Bonnie Bucqueroux understands how difficult it can be to get to campus when conditions are poor. “I have a dirt driveway, a half mile uphill, and, in the ice storms, it’s absolutely impassable,” Bucqueroux said. And with last year’s harsh winter, she took advantage of technology out of concern for her students. “I could get out, but I worried about my students coming across campus. I said, ‘Today, we’re going to hold the class virtually.’
