  • Definitions

  • Fall 2020 courses will be delivered via several modes of instruction.

    Online — Synchronous and asynchronous, designed to be high quality as online experiences; these are courses regularly offered through UMaine Online. In MaineStreet, online courses will have the Location designation Web/On-line.

    Remote — Originally designed to be taught on campus; adapted for delivery entirely at a distance. Class meetings may be held synchronously via streaming (on Zoom or another platform), recorded and posted for later viewing, and/or replaced by other learning activities. Remote courses will have the Location designation UM Off-site and the Room designation Remote in MaineStreet.

    Face-to-Face (F2F) and Hybrid — Partially or fully in-person instruction, where classrooms have been modified to foster social distancing; many face-to-face classes will have hybrid components to reach students who cannot attend, must self-isolate, or hesitate to attend for other reasons. Face-to-face/hybrid courses will have the designation Orono UM Campus in MaineStreet and will have an assigned classroom location.

    Note: Courses listed as UM Off-site may still list "onsite classroom" as their instruction mode. To check to see if a class is being offered on-campus, check whether there is a classroom assigned. Those without a room assignment are remote.
