Curious about what your classes may look like this upcoming semester? All the different terms were confusing to me at first too, but I'm here to break it down for you. You'll thank me later.
You may ask yourself, "What is a remote course?"
And you may ask yourself, "What is a hybrid course?"
And you may tell yourself, "What is a hyflex course?"
In a knightshell here's what we're talking about:
If your course is listed as “classroom” it means that you will meet regularly on campus at your scheduled meeting time. You must be able to come to campus for this type of course.
If your course is online, all coursework will be conducted through Canvas over the Internet. Just as in a regular class, you will have a variety of materials to read and review, regular due dates for
and timely feedback from instructors, you just have a bit more flexibility during the week to determine when to complete your coursework and there is no requirement to ever be physically on campus.
If your course is remote it means all course sessions will be held online through WebEx and assignments and other course materials will be distributed through Canvas. While you do not have to be physically present on
campus, you do have to be present online at the time your course is scheduled.
If your course is hybrid you will be required to come to campus for SOME class sessions, but most sessions and coursework will take place online through Canvas and WebEx. You should hear from your instructor before courses
begin as to which days you are expected to be present on campus.
If your course is HyFlex you have the most flexibility. You may choose to attend the course in person or online through WebEx at its regular meeting time. If you are unable to attend in person recordings of the class
sessions will be available to review allowing you to stay engaged. You do not have to come to campus for this type of course, unless you chose to. The number of students allowed on campus will be based on the room capacity, so work with your
instructor about what method you would like participate.
Come take a listen to me while I walk you through all the different types. I was confused at first too but now it's easy like Sunday morning.
And don't worry, it's the same as it ever was.
