Students are asking questions about what the different course delivery modalities mean. In a previous message to students, we showed you how to search for courses based on course delivery method:

 

Filter remote or blended learning classes

 

 

We offer more information on what these modalities mean below.

Remote Learning: These classes are 100% remote and exclude Ecampus courses. Students attend class sessions remotely at scheduled times (synchronously). There are no on-campus requirements. Students must be prepared to block class meeting times in their schedule and participate during those times. Class times listed in the Schedule of Classes use the Pacific Time zone.        

Blended Learning: OSU is planning for these classes to consist of both on-campus and remote elements. Unless health conditions change such that classes return to fully remote, students will attend class in-person and remotely based on a schedule from the instructor. Some components may include synchronous remote learning. Students must block class meeting times in their schedule and participate during those times. Class times listed use the Pacific Time zone.        

On-Campus Only: OSU is planning for all instruction in these courses to be delivered in-person. Unless health conditions change such that classes return to fully remote, students primarily attend class in-person/on-site. Instruction occurs at the scheduled time and location listed in the schedule of classes. Students must block class meeting times in their schedule and participate during those times. Class times listed use the Pacific Time zone.        

Ecampus: These classes consist of fully online (asynchronous) instruction and learning. Students participate via Canvas. Students meet regular deadlines and milestones throughout the course, but can participate in the course based on their schedules. Synchronous class meetings are not required.

 

If you have any questions about a particular course, please contact the instructor or the department offering the course.

 

Sincerely,

The Office of the Registrar
