COVID-19: Online or on Campus? The Evolution of Education

At Point Blank, the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff is our top priority for us. That’s why due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, we have decided to temporarily close our London and LA campuses until the start of next term, Monday, April 6th.

This decision was made to protect our students, staff, their families and social groups during the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and to do our part in slowing the spread of the virus.

Like many educational institutions, we have been working to implement measures to ensure that our students continue to get the very best in music education available and that we can continue to provide learning support across the globe.

Fortunately for our students, and prospective students, we are one of the world’s leading music schools when it comes to online learning.

In response to the current situation, and in consultation with our students, we have arranged for on-campus classes to be taught online via our state-of-the-art e-learning platform. We have already delivered a blended method of delivery in London and Los Angeles which mirrors how we teach in class and are excited by the feedback we’ve had so far:

My class overall went really well. We all had fun, and it was actually a little exciting being part of something new. I think there was a sense of camaraderie as here in LA we are basically all at home for the next two weeks on lockdown as per city instructions, so everyone being in the same boat helped.” – J, Los Angeles student

As we already operate a highly effective and successful online School, we have processes and procedures in place to ensure the smooth operating of our online delivery so fortunately, Point Blank is ahead of the curve here.

With years of development behind our online school, a state-of-the-art Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and world-class, expert lecturers providing 1-2-1 sessions, live masterclasses, feedback sessions and more, we are well equipped to deliver the Point Blank experience to or students wherever they are, in class, at home, online.

All of our student and applicant support services, including student wellbeing, are also available remotely and our dedicated team of teaching and support staff are always on hand to advise students and applicants alike.

Whatever happens over the coming weeks, we are committed to and capable of providing an excellent educational experience for all students whether at home, online or on campus.
