Soundbites & B-roll: Instructor Rick Mohler’s architecture class goes online

UW News


Beginning March 9, University of Washington instructors have been asked to conduct classes and exams remotely when feasible until the quarter concludes on March 20.

Rick Mohler, associate professor of architecture in the College of Built Environments, is now teaching his classes using Zoom. His architecture classes usually meet in person, but were conducted entirely online Monday.

These actions are being taken in response to recommendations from public health agencies to avoid bringing large groups of people together in close proximity for events and gatherings, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak in this region. If events and gatherings are held, best practices such as social distancing are encouraged.

UW campuses will remain open to serve all those who rely on services, including hospitals and clinics, dining services, residence halls, and recreation and athletics facilities. Husky athletics events will proceed as scheduled.
