What are the features of a remote delivery course and should I take it?

A remote delivery course is an in-class course that is being delivered remotely, due to unforeseen circumstance that prevent in-class course delivery. As such, certain online adaptations are utilized that are more common of online course delivery methods. In a remote delivery course, instructors do not meet with their learners in person, but rather use online course delivery tools to simulate the in-class learning experience. As with in-class, online, and hybrid courses, a remote delivery course will have a Quercus course site that allows instructors to connect with their learners, organize and deliver course content and assess learners’ work.

In cases where an in-class course is required to move into remote delivery, instructors will ensure that the transition has been clearly communicated with learners, provide support where appropriate, and be flexible with the alternative course options provided.

Time commitment expectations are identical to online course delivery. In a typical course, you are expected to devote four to six hours per week on course related activities. That includes live webinars, pre-recorded lectures (if applicable), reading, studying, assignments, project work, and/or exam preparation.
