Spring 2021 Course Formats
Published on Nov 9, 2020
Spring classes are quickly approaching, and I wanted to remind you that for your health and safety, we will be following the same course format that we did for this fall semester.
Our classes are going to be offered in a variety of formats. There will be fully online classes as well as face-to-face classes and some options that are a mixture of both (barring any disruption from pandemic response). Most lecture type classes will be interactive live streamed through Blackboard Collaborate. Face-to-face classes will have a strong online or remote instruction part, so if in-person classes must move online for a while you will be ready. And, there are a variety of scheduling options, including 16-week, 12-week, and 8-week sessions so you can take classes when it fits your schedule.
Understand the different class formats in this short video.
