2021-22 Delivery Modes

The Delivery Modes for 2021/22 are pending final decision and will be announced in due course.

In Person (INPER):  A course that has any requirement for in person (face to face, live, real time) attendance at a specific physical location. An in-person course may also have synchronous and/or asynchronous components that can be completed remotely. (Subject to adjustments imposed by public health requirements for physical distancing). When enrolling for this delivery mode, students should use LEC0101 in the Meeting Section on ACORN/ROSI.

Online Synchronous (SYNC):  A course is considered Online Synchronous if online attendance is expected at a specific time for some or all course activities, and attendance at a specific location is not expected for any activities or exams. When enrolling for this delivery mode, students should use LEC9101 in the Meeting Section on ACORN/ROSI.

Asynchronous (ASYNC):  A course is considered Asynchronous if it has no requirement for attendance at a specific time or location for any activities or exams. Components may be online or remote (e.g., reading, writing, etc.). An asynchronous offering is not “self-paced” – there are deadlines/milestones that must be met, but the student can do the work at any time of day or night that suits them.

Recommended technology requirements for remote/online learning.
