Immersive Course Work

The Simmons School of Nursing professors have worked with a team of content developers to turn their traditional lessons into interactive multimedia assignments. Throughout each week, students view this content and complete coursework at their own pace. Coursework is designed to expand on the week’s in-class lessons and prepare students for the next live session. Students can access their self-paced work online, or they can download it to a mobile device so they can access it when they are offline from wherever they are.


Course content is accessible 24/7 via our online platform to fit into students’ busy schedules. This content includes dynamic videos, real-time quizzes, and recorded lectures.

Inside the Flipped Classroom |
Immersive, Self-Paced Coursework

Nursing@Simmons delivers coursework using a flipped-classroom strategy. With this blended learning style, the traditional classroom-based learning format is reversed by delivering instructional content before class. Classroom time is then used to deepen students’ understanding of core concepts.

Nursing@Simmons students can review their instructional content at their own pace. They can access multimedia assignments online or download them to a range of devices — mobile, tablet, or computer — to access them offline from any location. During live classes, Simmons University faculty guide students to actively apply their knowledge with real-time discussion and activities.

To fit students’ busy schedules, course content is accessible 24/7 via our online platform. This content — delivered via a flipped-classroom strategy — includes dynamic videos, real-time quizzes, and recorded lectures.
