Spring 2021 classes will be offered in the following delivery modes: face-to-face, hybrid/HyFlex and online. This is Tarleton’s way of offering greater choice to manage coursework during an evolving global health crisis.
We will continue our tradition of offering quality in-class instruction where safe physical distancing allows for regularly scheduled classes. All learning spaces have been evaluated to determine new occupancy limits, and these limits will be posted outside each space.
Hybrid/HyFlex are unique delivery modes that blend multiple forms of instruction: face-to-face in classroom, face-to-face remote synchronous interactive classes, and remote asynchronous classes (this mode is available with instructor approval ONLY). All modes will be used simultaneously.
- Face-to-face — Just like it sounds. Students and faculty attend classes or labs in person.
- Remote synchronous — Students log in to the real-time class from any device with an internet connection. They can view the live class and participate remotely via Zoom from any location.
- Remote asynchronous — (NOTE: This mode requires instructor approval.) Students access recordings of the class after it occurs. Instructors post links to the recording in Canvas within 24-48 hours. While they cannot actively participate in the real-time classes, students can view the class, in-class discussions and activities. Students exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms should opt for remote synchronous or asynchronous sessions.
Tarleton has offered degrees fully online for nearly 20 years. This is common for many programs and does not require face-to-face interaction.
