fall 2020 courses


Fall 2020 Courses has been updated on July 20, 2020.

 

Courses will be delivered three ways (the delivery method for each section of a course is indicated in the Schedule of Classes and Testudo’s Student Schedule):

  • Face-to-face: The class meets together, physically on campus, for all class meetings.
  • Blended/hybrid learning: The class meets both in person and online.
  • Most blended courses physically gather in a classroom on some days and online on other days, as noted on the Schedule of Classes. In a few blended courses, the class will be divided into smaller groups that alternate between face-to-face and online participation, such that on any given day, one group participates face to face while the other simultaneously participates online. In such cases, your instructor determines when each group will meet and how. These courses are indicated by the following note in the Schedule of Classes: “Alternating face-to-face/online class meeting. Please see instructor for details.”
  • Online: The class meets online in one of three ways: synchronously, asynchronously or a combination of both. This is indicated with the following text on your Student Schedule: “This section is online.”
  • Synchronous: instructor meets with all students at a specified day and time, which will be reflected on your schedule and also in the Schedule of Classes.
  • Asynchronous: instructor provides content for students to review on their own, which will be reflected as “TBA” on your student schedule and on the Schedule of Classes.
  • Combination: includes synchronous and asynchronous instruction.
