Course Delivery Methods: Spring and Summer 2021

The Titans Return Implementation Team has identified a variety of course delivery methods to be used in the Spring 2021 semester. This page will help students understand the delivery methods assigned to each of their classes.

The Registration Toolkit contains more information regarding how to register for classes using TitanWeb.

How can students learn how their classes will be offered?

When you view a class on TitanWeb, you will see information about that class’s delivery method.

If a class’s Room field shows “Online Synchr- see day/time,” the class is 100% online and will meet synchronously. In synchronous courses, students will participate at the scheduled class time and the course delivery will involve real-time interaction.

If a class’s Room field shows “100% Online-no sched mtg time,” the class is 100% online and will meet asynchronously, with no real-time class interaction.

If a class’s Room field shows information for a specific classroom, the class will be held with in-person interaction.

Click the class listing’s hyperlinked section number in the Section field to see that class’s Notes, which will contain information about what in-person course modality will be used.

How can students build their schedule in order to take more classes online or in person?

Students can use the instructions above to learn whether courses will be taught 100% online or with an in-person component. If students would like to build their schedule in a way that allows them to take more classes that correspond with their preferred delivery method, they may do so through TitanWeb as they would in a usual semester.

If students are unsure what they should do or if they have questions about how to make changes to their schedule, they should connect with their faculty or academic adviser. A student’s adviser name and email address is listed on the Student Center in TitanWeb.

Searching for classes by mode of instruction

Students can search for classes taught using a particular course delivery method by using the “Mode of Instruction” search criterion in TitanWeb.

Requesting online accommodations

If a student wants to take a class through online delivery but they are unable to find a class section offered through 100% Online or HyFlex delivery, they may let their instructor know that they would like to be accommodated online. Requests for online accommodations must be made no later than five days prior to the first day of class (Jan. 27, 2021 for spring term and June 9, 2021 for summer term). Students in need of assistance after this date due to COVID-19 should contact the Dean of Students Office at https://uwosh.edu/deanofstudents/ accessibility-center/students/out-of-class-letters/.

Instructors will be prepared to accommodate students online to the fullest extent possible, given the nature of the course and the available technology. (Note: HyFlex courses may be taken entirely online without needing to request an accommodation.)

Note: Details may vary from class to class. Instructors will contact students with any additional information about how classes will be run.

All class sessions will be held through face-to-face instruction.

Although the expectation is that students attend in person, they may request to be accommodated online.
