How will courses be taught in the Fall?

For Fall, 50% of courses are expected to be in-person and 50% remote. Please review the definitions below so you understand the instructional method being used in each of your courses.

In-Person Courses

  • In-person courses will be designated with a building and room number. Some in-person courses may rotate attendance in the classroom; your instructor will describe the details of this type of attendance. Course capacities have been reduced for in-person courses and social distancing rules will be maintained.

Remote and Online Courses

  • Remote and online courses are either Synchronous or Asynchronous. These designations are noted in Self Service in the Meeting Times column on each course record. Please note that the columns in the course record can be expanded by hovering your mouse over the column separator and pulling the column wider to fully expose all the text.
    • Synchronous means that there are routine course meeting times where class activities are conducted through a virtual platform. In Self Service, courses labeled Remote Learning are generally synchronous courses. In addition, some Online-Blackboard and Online-Collaborate courses are synchronous. Look for calendar days and times – – these are indicators that the course has designated, routine meeting times.

    • Asynchronous means that there is no standard, routine course meeting times. In Self Service, many courses labeled Online-Blackboard are asynchronous. If no calendar days and times are indicated, then the course is asynchronous.

Full Semester and Flex Start

To determine if a class is for the full semester or one of the flex start sessions, expand the meeting times column by dragging the right side of the column header until you can see the start date and end date.

  • Full semester courses have a start date of 9/1/2021 and end date of 12/22/2021
  • Flex Start 1 courses have a start date of 9/1/2021 and end date of 10/24/2021
