MTSU’s American Sign Language courses will continue this summer through digital technology.
The Center for Accelerated Language Acquisition, or CALA, will use a videoconferencing platform called Jitsi to conduct two separate sections of classes from 1 to 2:30 p.m. June 15-19 and from 1 to 2:30 p.m. June 22-26.
Jitsi will enable the instructor and participants to see each other and interact with each other in real time during the classes.
The classes will include games and other hands-on activities dealing with greetings, numbers, colors, body parts, the alphabet and elements of everyday conversation.
Class fees are $100 for MTSU and high school students; $115 for MTSU faculty, staff and alumni; and $130 for members of the general public.
Early registration is advised since each class must be capped at 30 participants.
