Spring 2021 classes will be held ONLINE. Here’s what you need to know when you search WebAdvisor for classes.

Students are now able to search for one of five locations on Search for Sections. These locations include:

  • Online – Live Sessions*
  • Online – No Live Sessions**
  • Other Off Campus
  • Fremont
  • Newark

*Online LIVE Sessions—The class will meet at a scheduled time and day (synchronous instruction) in an online classroom via Zoom. Students will virtually be in class with their classmates and their live instructor where they will be able to ask questions and interact in real time as if they were in a face-to-face classroom. These real-time online sessions will be complemented with course content and activities delivered through Canvas. Rooms for these classes are listed as Zoom in WebAdvisor.

**Online NO LIVE Sessions—This is a fully online class entirely conducted on the web (asynchronous instruction). There are no live meetings (virtually or via in person). Course delivery is via a course management system called Canvas. Weekly interaction with course content, the instructor, and classmates is expected. Due dates are set and students are expected to interact multiple times a week in asynchronous activities in Canvas. Rooms for these classes are listed as Canvas in WebAdvisor.

Other Important Information

Hybrid Class: During Spring 2021, a hybrid class may have two online components: one synchronous and the other asynchronous. That means that you will be expected to attend live Zoom sessions on designated days and times, as well as complete additional online work asynchronously. Students should refer to WebAdvisor for class meeting days and times. Make sure to click on the “Section & Book Information” link in WebAdvisor so you don't miss important details regarding the format of your class.
