We are excited to offer course schedules to support the varied needs of our students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Classes will be offered in a variety of methods, including traditional or face-to face with reduced class sizes, online asynchronous, online synchronous, hybrid, and blended.
Even amid the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is our goal to work with each student to find an instructional method that works best during these unprecedented times.
Students who have already registered, may review their schedules in Self-Service. If schedule changes need to be made, please contact Ms. Kim Jacobs at (910) 272-3353 or email@example.com. Below is a brief description of the types of instructional delivery methods that will be offered for the fall semester:
- Blended Courses: Curriculum or continuing education courses in which less than (<) 50% of instruction is delivered when the student and the instructor are separated by distance. Students should expect to complete assignments and to participate fully in both the online and face-to-face portions of the class.
- Hybrid Courses: A hybrid course combines both the online and face-to-face environment. Part of the instruction, such as lectures, is presented online while another segment, such as lab work, is taught in the traditional face-to-face setting. Curriculum or continuing education courses will be delivered with more than (>) 50%, but less than (<) 100% of instruction when the student and the instructor are separated by distance. Students should expect to complete assignments and to participate fully in both the online and face-to-face portions of the class.
- Online Courses: In an online course, instruction may be synchronous (requires all participants to be online at a specified time) or asynchronous (learning “anytime, anywhere” meaning that the learning process of a subject is performed without fixed class hours in classrooms). College curriculum or continuing education course in which 100% of the instruction is delivered via the Internet/online. Courses may have proctored testing, but instruction is delivered online.
- Traditional or Web Assisted Course: A web assisted course is a College credit course where the primary delivery is via traditional face-to face method with a requirement that students have Internet access as a supplemental part of the course. A class where instruction is provided during regularly-scheduled classroom or laboratory/clinical meeting times attended by students in-person. Faculty will use the Course Learning Management System (LMS) to provide some instructional information and resources via the online environment.
- North Carolina Information Highway (NCIH) Course: Through the assistance of a video network, students are seated in a classroom at Robeson Community College while they view their instructor, who is located at another institution, via a television screen. Such a course is offered through NCIH (North Carolina Information Highway).
