About Remote Learning
Remote classes give you the opportunity to engage in class, connect with your classmates and instructors through synchronous/real-time meetings, and attend lectures from the comfort of your own home. If you are attending a remote learning class, you may be asked to attend online meetings in Zoom, as well as complete work in Canvas.
Remote instruction is defined as a blended delivery of online activity mixed with remote classroom meetings and instructional activities. Any synchronous/real-time instruction will be offered during the scheduled course meeting time. Proctored exams may be required in some courses.
