Spring 2021 Course Types

All Spring 2021 classes that were scheduled to have on-campus instruction (TRAD and HYBRID classes) will RESUME on campus beginning February 2, 2021. Please note that in the event of inclement weather, rather than cancelling classes, they will meet synchronously online (LRON) during the regularly scheduled class time that day in lieu of traveling to the campus building.  Text alerts and email messaging will notify you if the college is switching to remote instruction due to inclement weather on any given day. For more information about the various types of courses, see below.

On-Ground

These courses are delivered on campus at a specific time, place, and location.

Technology: Minimal, depending on the instructor assignments and instruction (unless a shutdown occurs); however Blackboard is often used for delivery of supplemental course materials.

Online

These courses are delivered fully online (asynchronously).

Technology: Students need a reliable computer with internet connection. Typically, all instruction and assessment are delivered through Blackboard—often in conjunction with publisher-based content. These courses include discussion boards, assignments, projects, assessments, etc.

Online with Classroom Component (OLCR)

These courses may require an on-ground orientation and/or proctored assessments, although all instruction is delivered online (asynchronously).
