Colleges with campuses in China have been affected more directly. New York University has turned to remote communication and instructional technology at its Shanghai campus, which so far has been delayed from opening until Feb. 17. About half of the 1,500 students there are are Chinese nationals. Uncertain about when travel to the region will reopen, the university expects to rely on a mix of digital and classroom-based instruction this semester.¬†While NYU has had to respond to situations in which students are unable to get to or from a campus, the scale of the current outbreak is “unprecedented,” said Clay Shirky, the university’s vice provost for educational technologies.
