Blackboard and Microsoft Teams will be used for course instruction. Classes will be taught synchronous to your class schedule meaning you will be expected to be online during your scheduled class time/date. For scheduling conflicts, please contact your instructors immediately. Instructors will work individually with students in need of schedule adjustments during this time.
It is highly recommended students take time to become well versed with our online learning platforms, Microsoft Teams, and Blackboard. Links to online training are available to assist students through this transition.

While students are expected to attend classes synchronous to the schedule, a broad look at accommodations is necessary to assist students who may require asynchronous learning. Students must complete and submit the Asynchronous Learning Form – Fall 2020 to their course instructor at least one week in advance if it is due to a scheduled event (i.e. surgery) or because of a drastic time zone difference to allow faculty to meet with the student to come up with a plan of action for the quarter. In the event of an emergency, then the faculty will make that consideration on a case by case basis.
