NMC’s plan for Fall semester is almost complete. Our schedule of classes will include face-to-face and online formats with an emphasis on safety and flexibility.
The existing Fall 2020 schedule is in the process of being revised to update class formats to prioritize your safety and varied learning needs.
Here are the class formats you can expect:
Lecture Courses occur face-to-face in an on-campus classroom. Instructors use Moodle for the course syllabus and gradebook or other resources to supplement face-to-face instruction. This includes courses required to meet face to face because of accreditation regulations such as dental assisting, police academy, and welding courses.
Online Courses are entirely online. Students are responsible for logging in to Moodle in order to complete assignments and activities by specific due dates. Online courses may also have proctored testing requirements that require students to complete tests on-campus or online throughout the semester.
Hybrid Courses blend online, face-to-face, and/or livestream synchronous delivery using a video platform like Zoom. Most course activity is done online in Moodle, but there may be some required face-to-face instructional activities, such as lectures, discussions, labs, or other in-person learning activities.
Livestream Courses meet during a regularly scheduled time via a web conferencing tool like Zoom. Moodle is used to distribute materials, submit assignments, grading, and share feedback.
If you are already registered for class(es), some of your class formats will likely be changed but you will remain enrolled in classes.
You will be notified of your specific class format changes the week of June 22 via your NMC email. The full updated course catalog will also be available on June 22. Until then, the existing Fall 2020 schedule remains open for registration.
