Alternative Course Delivery

Some Fall 2021 face-to-face courses will be delivered remotely through synchronous delivery from September 9 until the week of September 27. View the list of courses and additional details.

Some undergraduate courses and/or course components for the Fall 2021 semester will be delivered in an alternative delivery format through CourseLink and other online platforms. What do these delivery formats mean?

  1. AD-A REMOTE (Asynchronous) learning happens without the need for real-time interaction. It has no requirement for attendance at a specific time or location for any activities or exams. Your instructor will provide materials for reading, lectures for viewing, and assignments and assessments with deadlines, and you can access the material and satisfy these requirements based on your own schedule.

    An Asynchronous course is similar to U of G Distance Education (DE) courses and uses a variety of tools and resources to provide students with an enriched and flexible online learning experience with no scheduled times. AD-A REMOTE courses will display differently than DE courses on WebAdvisor; please see the "How will courses display on WebAdvisor" section.

  2. AD-S VIRTUAL (Synchronous) learning happens in real time. This means that you, your classmates, and your instructor interact through a specific online medium (e.g., Zoom), at a specific time (e.g., 9:30 to 10:20, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) for some or all course activities.

A significant number of courses will have face-to-face components; please refer to WebAdvisor. Health and safety protocols will be in effect for all face-to-face courses on campus.
