Tips for Success in Fall 2020 Blended Classes

What is a blended class?

In response to COVID-19 the university wanted to ensure safety while also allowing the personal touch that comes with face-to-face classes. A blended class has a mixture of in-person and online attendance. Often it means students rotate between attending in-person and online. In other cases, some students attend entirely online while others attend mainly in-person.

How do I know the attendance expectations of each of my classes?

There are two things to check: 1.) How the class is listed, and 2.) for blended courses, how your instructor has decided to schedule attendance.

Here’s how to check if your class is a blended course.
  1. Log into Porches.
  2. On the Front Porch under “Course Registration,” click on “View Your Schedule.”
  3. The “Subject Description” column provides the format – blended, face-to-face, web – for the class. The WEB or Remote designation indicates it’s an online-only course.

  3. If you are unable to find blended scheduling information, email your instructor and request information on how you should attend.
