UH plans to deliver classes this fall in the following three instructional modes:
Hyflex: courses have a safe number of students face-to-face in a socially distanced classroom, with lectures being live-streamed to allow additional students to participate in the class remotely. Lectures are also recorded for viewing by students online later if necessary, with additional course materials posted online that can be accessed anytime. These courses are displayed with a Meeting Time and Room Location in the class schedule.
Synchronous Online: courses have NO Face-to-Face classes but do meet at a particular day and time in a virtual classroom. All course materials are available online and virtual lectures may be recorded to provide additional flexibility for students to view them later. These courses are displayed as “Online” with a Meeting Time in the class schedule.
Asynchronous Online: courses have NO Face-to-Face classes or virtual meeting times. All course materials are available online anytime. These courses are displayed as “Online” with NO Meeting Time in the schedule.
