On Friday, we showed you students showing up for school at Simpson University. On Monday, they started class.

Nursing students were observing social distancing. When there's not enough room, some classes will have both in-person and online learning.

Provost Dale Simmons says while school is up and running, there are some hiccups, like technology that was ordered and was supposed to be here but hasn't arrived yet.

"No, it's not going to hold us back," said Dr. Simmons. "Some of the things we're missing are some of the 360-degree cameras that would allow us to follow the professor when the professor moves, and also to show the students in the classroom because with social distancing we can in some cases, not everybody can be in the classroom at the same time."

Until the 360-degree cameras arrive, faculty can use their computer cameras.

The high-flex learning model allows for in-person and online instruction.

And Dr. Simmons says professors have a learning curve as well like addressing online students and checking for questions they post.
