Three Class Formats
For the first time, Bentley will be offering some of our undergraduate summer courses online, utilizing three formats:
- Hybrid courses, in which students will have the option of attending in the classroom
- Or working from a remote location during the regularly scheduled class times
- Synchronous, in which students will work on-line from a remote location during the regularly assigned class times.
Courses that are offered with the HYBRID designation allow all enrolled students a choice in how they attend class: either by being physically present in a classroom on campus or by attending the class from a remote location. Students can choose to attend class in the classroom or online each week, depending on what best fits their schedule on any given day.
Courses that are designated as SYNCHRONOUS ONLINE will NOT have a classroom component.
Courses designated as BLENDED will offer students the option of attending in the classroom for one or both class meetings or working from a remote location. In the first class each week, your instructor will be in the classroom. In the second class, your instructor will be working from a remote location, but students may work from the classroom, if they choose. A technical support person will be present.
NOTE: For both options, students must be online at the same time that the course is being conducted in the classroom. Hybrid classes are delivered simultaneously online with the use of Web conferencing software, Saba Centra Virtual Classroom, that transmits video of the instructor, two-way audio, and real-time visuals between the classroom and remotely located students including PowerPoint slides, the professor's whiteboard, etc.
