How is your course being offered?

Are your classes live stream or in-person? 

Fall classes begin on August 17 and classes are going to be offered in a variety of formats. 

Most lecture type classes that were previously scheduled for face-to-face will now be interactive live streamed through Blackboard Collaborate. Interactive live stream courses, also known as remote synchronous, offer the same benefits of as in-person classes such as real time interaction with your professor and classmates but with the advantage of being able to participate from anywhere with reliable internet access. You will meet via Blackboard Collaborate on the scheduled days and times.

You can see what format your classes will be by visiting your Student Self Service.
