Virginia Tech’s new “Innovation Campus” has launched its first semester virtually. The school said last week that the university officials have decided to take classes entirely online for its initial semester as the pandemic rages on. Meanwhile, the city of Alexandria and Virginia Tech’s team of architects, lawyers, and planners are making quick work of the entitlement process for the planned $1 billion campuses. According to wtop.com, "Roughly 80 students are learning remotely, about two dozen enrolled in Virginia Tech’s master of engineering in computer science, a degree program created for the new campus. Sara Hooshangi is director of that program, hired in January from George Washington University’s College of Professional Studies. She’s teaching over Zoom from her office at Virginia Tech’s Falls Church campus."
