eLearning is the use of technology that enables people to learn, anytime and anywhere an Internet connection is available. At the Scottsdale Unified School District (SUSD), technology has been a key part of our teaching and learning approach for years. The recent school closures in response to the national emergency has provided the opportunity for SUSD to maximize the use of this technology as every student transitions from an on-campus experience to a cloud-based learning experience. SUSD’s eLearning approach offers the flexibility and connectivity that both students and teachers need to engage while campuses remain closed.
TIPS for Online Learning
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, we encourage you to support your child by helping them implement the following online learning strategies:

- Build a study schedule that includes breaks.
- Limit social media.
- Create to-do lists.
- Tackle the hard work first.
- Hold yourself accountable by creating goals.
- Stay connected with your teachers.
- Ask for help.
- Create online study groups when appropriate.
