When it comes to your classes, the best way to find out if they'll be online or in person is to check "Delivery Method" when registering in eServices. In addition, check the NOTES section. You will learn a lot more specifics about how the class is being offered in the notes section.
If the Delivery Method is blank, that means your class will be face-to-face or in person.
Get Started with D2L Brightspace
What do each of the Delivery Methods mean?
Online – asynchronous: A traditional online course. You can learn at your own pace and when it's convenient for you by logging in any day at any time to do your work, as long as you complete assignments and exams by their due dates.
Online – synchronous: Class will meet online during dates and times listed.
Mostly Online: Students will have 1-4 meetings face-to-face over the course of the semester. Dates are listed on schedule. Some of these meetings may be for exams.
Blended/Hybrid: Class will meet with a mixture of online and face-to-face. Face-to-face meeting dates are listed on the schedule. Some courses may be divided into groups and students may only have to come to class some of the course days listed. Unless otherwise instructed, students should come to class on campus the first day and teachers will explain how the semester will work. As we get closer to the first day of classes, be sure to monitor your e-mail and D2L for more specific information about your classes.
HyFlex: Students can opt to take the class face-to-face, online, or hybrid, as it works for your schedule. Lectures will be streamed so you can participate synchronously – checking the NOTES section of the class when you register is helpful to learn more about how each class will be offered. This is a very flexible way for students to take classes, as you can move between different ways of learning and find out what works best for you.
Face-to-face: A traditional on campus class that meets in person. Students and instructors in the classroom will follow social distancing guidelines.
No delivery method listed? Your class will be face-to-face or in person.
