What does this mean?

Classes will be delivered using one of four methods. When searching for courses in SCOTS, at the far right of the course entry is an “Attribute” that shows the course delivery method and additional information. The course delivery methods are numbered 1 through 4 with abbreviated descriptions that likely do not fully indicate how the course is offered. Fuller descriptions are shown below to provide you more information in choosing your classes.

1 = 100% Online: This is also known as an asynchronous delivery class. No meeting days and times are scheduled, and students will access their online course via D2L. Students complete coursework on their own schedule each week to meet assignment and testing deadlines specified by their professor.

2 = In-Person Required Component: This is also known as a multi-modal delivery class. The course will be offered live on campus on the days, times and room listed. In addition, delivery will also be available virtually for students not wishing to attend in-person. These courses will incorporate all or some in-person teaching that may transition to virtual delivery if health and safety conditions warrant. Note that there may be some exceptions to multi-modal delivery (where you may attend the course completely remotely); for instance, clinicals and labs may require that you are physically present for the class. Please contact the instructor if you plan to attend the course remotely and want to verify that all components of the course will be available in this way.

3 = 100% Online, Scheduled Time: This is also known as a synchronous delivery class. Students meet with the professor online via Zoom on the days and times indicated in the schedule. Assignments and other information may be in D2L.

4 = 100% Online, live/your time: This course delivery is a combination of numbers 1 and 3 above. Students may attend the course at scheduled days and times live via Zoom (synchronous delivery) OR may access recordings of the lectures and complete all other assignments through D2l on their own time (asynchronous delivery). Students may also switch between the two different types of delivery throughout the course.

A mixture of modes: This course delivery is a combination of numbers 1, 2, 3, or 4 above. The student has the option to choose which method, from those listed on the course description, meets their schedule needs and will work with their professor regarding which mode has been chosen.
