Toronto, ON (May 20, 2020) – ViewSonic Corporation, a leading global provider of visual solutions, has announced expanded distance learning tools and resources being made available to educators during the coronavirus pandemic. As parents, students and teachers prepare for extended school shutdowns, ViewSonic is working with educators to make e-learning even more accessible, interactive and engaging.
“Remote and distance learning lessons are definitely different than inside the confines of a classroom,” said Blake Everhart, Solution Training Manager at ViewSonic Americas. “As a former teacher, I understand there’s sometimes a gap between learning the scope and sequence of the technology side that can match up with the lessons you want to teach. The ability to create and complete lessons, and how to filter through the many resources that are out there makes it tough to focus. That’s why my team and I at ViewSonic are making ourselves available to help out, and make things less overwhelming.”
